The bad weather lash Italy today. Roads like rivers in Cilento, with cars half covered in mud and students hostage inside schools waiting for the water level to drop. This is the scenario this morning in Agropoli (Salerno), one of the municipalities most affected.
In the images posted on Facebook by the opposition councilor Elvira Serra, she can be seen addressing the students of a nearby accounting school – stuck in their classrooms on the upper floors – to reassure them. “The boys of the Accounting Department – says the councilor who is a doctor by profession – wave white handkerchiefs while the water continues to flow around the high school and has invaded everything”.
In the video you can also see an outdoor gym completely invaded by water. “This – continues the doctor in the video posted on social networks – is an area full of schools”. «In the summer – added the councilor Serra reached by telephone – the cleaning of the riverbed was not done with the consequence that all the debris now comes downstream. There was a default on the part of those who had to provide for the cleaning ».
Flood in Agropoli (SA) this morning. The heavy rains have transformed the streets into rivers of mud that have dragged everything even the cars.
There are currently no people involved.
