    Contrasting operations are still underway for damage caused by bad weather in Veneto, 250 interventions between the provinces of Rovigo, Vicenza, Verona and Padua, and in Lombardy, 200 interventions between Pavia, Cremona and Mantua. TO CremonaAfter an entire night in an emergency, with the firefighters who guaranteed more than one hundred interventions between the capital and the province, the damage count began. And they are huge. In addition to the dozens of fallen plants, many of them large and some collapsed on parked cars, the first inspections tell of uncovered roofs and damaged buildings. Even the town hall of the city, inspected for a long time by firefighters after some bricks fell, is currently cordoned off both along the side streets and in the part facing the Cathedral: the risk is that other fragments may fall and the danger, of course, is that can hit passers-by.

    On the other hand, the work of the firefighters in Piedmont (300 interventions) and in Liguria (150 interventions) ended during the night.

    Coldiretti: “We are facing the consequences of climate change”
    “Trees felled, floods harvested devastated, from vineyards to fruit, from vegetables to cornfrom wheat to fodder but also greenhouses and uncovered roofs and demolished walls of farmhouses are the effects of the perturbation which – underlines Coldiretti – has suddenly interrupted the heat and drought that is besieging the northern regions “. Italy, supports the association, to the consequences of climate change with the multiplication of extreme events and a tendency to tropicalization with a higher frequency of violent events, seasonal delays, short and intense rainfall. The result, he concludes: “is an account for agriculture of 14 billion euros in a decade “.
