Weather Alert for Tuscany

Heavy rain and strong winds are expected to arrive throughout the region at 11 am on October 14, with the situation expected to worsen in the afternoon, with a strong possibility of flooding.  The storm is forecast to be particularly intense in the areas of the Lunigiana, the Apuan Alps, Versilia and Garfagnana. School will be closed in the Lunigiana on Friday.

The wind will begin to die down that night, and it will continue to rain only along the Tuscan coast on Saturday morning.  To read more in Italian, visit Florence’s La Repubblica news site.
