Liguria and Veneto mop up after storms

St Mark's inspected for damage to mosaic flooring

(ANSA) - Rome, October 31 - The northern regions of Liguria and Veneto were mopping up Wednesday after a wave of storms that caused millions of euros in damage.
    Veneto Governor Luca Zaia said "the storms have caused a billion euros worth of damage".
    Culture ministry experts began to inspect suspected damage to the mosaic flooring of St Mark's Basilica in Venice, submerged by an unusually high 'acqua alta' on Monday.
    The situation was similar across Italy in Liguria, where hundreds of yachts were smashed to bits at Rapallo marina Tuesday.
    In Tuscany the first half a million euros was earmarked for relief.
