New Flood Warnings for the River Tiber in Rome!

Just over a year since the last dramatic flooding of the Tiber, water levels have once again risen alarmingly after days of incessant rain and Rome is at risk of flooding. I took this photograph of Castel Sant'Angelo last night from Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II where the Tevere had risen above the 11 metre mark. With weather forecasts giving more rain over the weekend the river is expected to reach 13 metres by Sunday.
