Flooding pounded Italy amid heavy rains over the weekend, leaving at least three dead and a stretch of elevated highway collapsed by a landslide. The weather has trapped travelers, downed trees and unleashing mudslides.
In an aerial video and photos taken by firefighters, cars and one truck could be seen stopped perilously close to the point where the raised part of the A6 highway plunged into a wooded area of the Liguria region.
A man from one of the cars closest to the precipice stood outside his vehicle, holding up his arms toward other traffic to make sure drivers stopped.
The collapse was eerily reminiscent of the 2018 bridge tragedy in Genoa during a rainstorm that killed 43 people, when cars plunged into a dry riverbed below.
