Hurricane-force winds, widespread floods hit Italy

At least 11 people have been killed and many injured after severe storms produced heavy rain and strong winds across Italy on October 29 and 30, 2018, causing widespread floods and damage. Some of the worst affected areas are on the west coast, particularly in Liguria. Many people were evacuated due to increased river levels across the country.

Winds up to 180 km/h (112 mph) were reported in parts of Italy on October 29, 2018, and blamed for the deaths of at least 6 of the 11 killed people. Trees were downed from the country's north down to capital Rome and further south to Naples.
