PICTURES: Venice Flooding

share on:

Heavy rains and high tides have brought some of the worst flooding to Venice, Italy in about 22 years.

The “acqua alta”, or high water, is common this time of year and Sunday’s level of 149 centimeters (4 ft, 10 in) was below the 160 centimeters (5 ft, 2 in) recorded four years ago in the worst flooding in decades.

Forecasters say the bad weather and torrential rainfall will continue through Tuesday. Below are images from Venice as it endures this recent acqua alta
