Several areas on high alert as severe Weather continues to batter Italy, after a weekend of heavy rain and high winds in many regions.

Severe floods are impacting areas in southern Italy today, with videos posted to social media showing floodwater swirling through streets. Italian Coastal areas are at the highest risk of violent storms.
According to SevereWeather.eu extreme threat warnings for flash flooding in southern Italy are in place until November 14th. 6th.
Numerous roads and motorways in these regions are closed, or experiencing delays and heavy traffic, mainly due to localized flooding or fallen trees.
Churning in the skies above Italy is a V-shaped mesoscale convective system (MCS) causing intense storms and torrential rainfall onto the Calabria and Puglia regions.

This level of rain has triggered flash flood warnings for Sicily, Calabria, Puglia and Sardinia, with excessive floodwater already impacting Sicily and Puglia.
The system, known as Medicane, has drifted across the Mediterranean Ocean, sparking flash floodings in Tunisia and Lybia earlier this week.
