CAMPANIA FLOOD. It’s still raining on stretches of Campania, albeit with a decidedly more attenuated intensity than yesterday, when a real flood hit Cilento causing extensive damage. The municipality of Agropoli and Castellabate, in the Salerno area, where the Fire Brigade, supported by departments from all over the region, carried out hundreds of interventions. Some streams have overflowed causing heavy flooding that has transformed the streets into rivers full of debris. Many cars were dragged by the current, the water invaded cellars, shops on the ground floors and some schools. All schools in the province will be closed on Monday and Tuesday.

‘The photos and videos that come to us from Cilento, and in particular from Agropoli and Castellabate, leave us speechless. Heavy rains, flooding of the Testene river and other watercourses have caused the flooding of urban centres. My full solidarity with mayors Roberto Mutalipassi and Marco Rizzo and with all the affected communities. The Province will not fail to make its contribution in this difficult moment’ said the president of the province Michele Strianese.
