Totally inadequate duck boards here. Are the local authorities doing enough?
Morning Ruby-I think I agree with you as this whole viewing this morning looks worse than ever- people wading chest deep, winds blowing the wate across the footpath 9 or is it the sea\\0 Just awful- sad , very sad- people trying to help each other, the walkways disappearing underwater-. I cannot believe I am watching this as it is like a horrr movie and its happening in front of us and what is beig done to help the people and the city- lost for words
This looks worse than before.
The hightide flooding is almost indestinguishable from the sea- very scary, take care everyone and sending best wishes for a safe christmas to you all
Looks like another high tide. Piazza San Marco is flooded again.
Lots of views, but very few comments?
Hi Corinne, I thought yesterday that perhaps things were improving, but dreadful again today..
now the whole area is under water, much more than in the past few days. my thoughts for the people of venice. may this situation get better quickly
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.
What a difference a day makes, lots of people around
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?
14.10.19. Very foggy Monday morning!
