River Tiber at dangerously high levels

River Tiber, Castel Sant'Angelo and Ponte Sant'Angelo
1 February, 2014
Days of incessant rain have brought floods north of Rome and the swollen River Tiber has risen to dramatically high levels in the city. When the rain briefly turned to drizzle yesterday afternoon I took a stroll to Castel Sant'Angelo where the Tevere had almost reached the arches of Ponte Sant'Angelo. Later that evening the Tiber rose to almost 13 metres at high tide.

I shot this video from Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II bridge. Watch below or click here to watch on YouTube.
