I Know its winter, but god it looks quiet
Something being filmed at 2:24am 22/12/20. Looks like a couple dancing but it’s not clea
There are metal ornate round drain covers at regular intervals between the 'tram line' pattern in square. When high tides come water seeps up through these grids and, if bad, floods the square - as the tides subside the water drains back through these openings. If when some tides are exceptionally high - as last year - the whole of Venice floods. Hopefully the new flood barrier will stop this one day.
Well, seems to be true, for the Square was somewhat flooded at about 11:30 am. and now is drier, or at least better for people to walk on it and not get wet!
Once the water levels go down again, things quickly get back to normal naturally.
Venice flooded as new $8 billion dam system fails to activateDECEMBER 9, 2020 / 4:28 AM / AFP I don't see any signs of it flooding? Is there a system in place to get the water out of the Square quickly so that later in the day, it is now drying out?
Someone wading across the square at the mo lol
