    I certainly does Anne, I've just noticed the picture sellers are all set up again, let's hope they get a few days without rain so the water level drops further.

    When I first logged on this morning the water was just lapping over the edge and it's been frightening to see how bad it got in a relatively short time, obviously as high tide approached. As Marie-Anne said politicians have to do something, talking about it won't help, action needs to be taken. Let's hope our hosts, in the lovely Hotel Londra Palace are all safe and not too much damage has been done.

    It is really very sad to see al that water (again). Ik really don't understand that the politicians can't come to an agreement for a dike. They discus it so long. There is a dike now and for some reason it does not function. And the sinking of the city, the raising of the sea level and al the rain makes it worse.

    I think people are just lost for words when something sad like this happens we could never appreciate what these people are going through unless you have experienced it yourself you can only look on, what is the answer for Venice, I don’t know but hopefully someone does, I wish them all the very best.

    Very sad for Venice and it’s people. So many beautiful buildings, and lots have been ruined, but Mother Nature nobody can predict or change. Very sad indeed.

    Just an thought and may get deleted or shot down in flames but...... at 9.52 local time there are over 8,000 people viewing this camera, surely someone must have a comment/observation about the awful conditions we can see?

    I like you 'new' system to show an unknown webcam before I open my regular one. So I get more impressions.

    Yes User user64427494 - looks like you’re right - the weekends seem to be the busiest. Counted 6 cruise ships going in and out on yesterday’s timelapse!

    I haven't managed to find a schedule for Venice. During the week there is only one or two cruise liners. Saturday and Sunday over the last few weeks there has been 5 or 6 large cruise liners in. As they are only slow moving its quite easy to check the dock area and see if any tugs are working. Most of the ships can be seen just above the buildings at the top right of the picture

    Hi JF - yes I must admit I was surprised at seeing so many in one day. I have not looked at a cruise ship schedule for here (I have one for Valletta, Malta) so do not know if this is a daily occurrence.

    00:43 August 20 - Hi PMM, Your post about the cruise ships on Time Lapse intrigued me. So I viewed it a few minutes ago, and counted 5 massive cruise ships entering, and 6 massive cruise ships departing over the course of the Time Lapse I viewed. Great observation PMM, especially because of the dispute about the ships with the Venetian residents. Must be a nightmare with 5 cities-worth of cruise ship populations descending upon the Venetians daily. There's thousands of people on each ship.
