Flooding in Rome

Rome's civil protection authorities are on alert following a night of heavy rainfall that has led to flooding, some fallen trees and heavy traffic across the capital.

Among the areas worst-affected districts are around Tiburtina station and Ponte Mammolo, causing delayed bus services in the area. A number of departments at the Umberto I hospital in S. Lorenzo have also been flooded.

Rome is currently experiencing a 48-hour blast of bad weather known as "Medea" but the sun is due to return on the weekend of 15 September.
