The heavy rains, warns the Civil Protection Hall of the Metropolitan City of Florence (Firenze), have raised the hydrometric levels of the main and secondary lattice in the territory of the Metrocitta of Florence .
The Arno is above the first level in Florence, reaching 3.50 meters on the embankment, due to the rains that are affecting most of the region since last night. The same Arno reached the second level in Incisa-Figline.
Due to heavy rains in Via Bugiardini 21 in Florence a retaining wall collapsed inside an apartment building. Six parked cars were damaged. No one was injured.
The probable flood peak of the Arno at the “Firenze Uffizi” survey station is expected around 12 today, near or slightly lower than the second critical level (5.5 meters), however above the maximum recorded in the last 20 years.
