Italy - June 21st, 2009

Summer got off to a tragic start in Italy as an atmospheric disturbance brought severe downpours, whirlwinds and rough seas, causing seven deaths in 36 hours.

The storms also disrupted transportation on land and sea, and city infrastructures were damaged by water and high winds.

At least half of the country was touched by storms, although the most affected regions were Apulia, Latium and Tuscany. Here, the skies over Italy gradually clear as the disturbance moves away.
