The popular tourist hotspot has been warned there will be further high tides of 105cm at 11.15 am tomorrow Friday, November 29. Three of the worst ten floods to hit Venice since records began have happened in a week.
On November 12, over 80% of the city was flooded. According to the Italian press, the high tide is being reinforced by strong storms in the area of the Adriatic.
A project to protect the city was launched in 2003, but it has been hit by rising costs and delays. The increase in sea level in Venice is partly due to climate change and partly due to subsidence so because the land around Venice is getting lower.
