Heavy rains hit Italy and Spain

Following several deadly incidents in the past month, residents of Italy may be thinking that the nation has become a magnet for flooding rainfall, AccuWeather wrote.

The most recent flooding event occurred late Tuesday when torrential rain triggered a massive mudslide in the community of Saponara and claiming four lives, including a 10-year-old boy. In the neighboring Italian region of Calabria, heavy rain forced officials to suspend railway service earlier this week after some routes became inundated with flood waters and landslide debris. The torrential rain also washed away railway bridges.



The death toll from severe flooding across Italy in the past month is now 21. Flooding claimed the lives of at least six people in Genoa, a northwestern Italian city, in early November and at least nine people in Tuscany and the “Cinque Terre” tourist area of Liguria.

Italy could suffers another severe flash flooding incident through Friday with locally drenching showers and a few thunderstorms in the forecast for the nation’s east-central coast and southern regions. The flood threat will end this weekend as a dome of high pressure settles across Italy, returning widespread dry weather.


Meanwhile, several areas of Spain are also on flood alert after heavy rains swept the country that have left one person dead.
