Italy: severe weather alert still in place in flood-hit Senigallia

Rescue teams in the central Italian town of Senigallia have been wading through streets filled with water to bring aid to residents in the aftermath of devastating floods.

Although the rain has stopped, a severe weather alert is still in place and schools will remain closed on Monday.

Local media reports that two people have died during the peak of the flooding – one from drowning and another from a heart condition, as emergency vehicles could not reach him in time.

With many of their homes engulfed by water, residents have been calling these floods unprecedented.

Standing in the doorway of his home, with water around his ankles, home owner Marco Rossi told reporters: “Old people who live on this street, some are over 80, and they don’t remember anything like this!”
