The thunderstorms have been located and have affected only some districts of the city: Pegli, Foce, heights of Righi and the nearby town of Arenzano.
The location of the storms, which mainly affected the coastal area, did not create problems for the main streams: there were no level rises. The Fiumara rain gauge recorded in an hour 78mm of rain and in 6 hours 175, that of the Righi 144 mm in 6 hours, Arpal says. In Fontanafresca, in the Municipality of Sori (Genoa) the strongest gust of wind: 75 km per hour. The rains will continue throughout the day and Monday is expected to worsen.
The most critical situation in Brin and in Piazza Montano
About fifty interventions by firefighters in Genoa for flooding of underpasses and basements, small landslides and inconveniences due to the heavy rains of these hours. The greatest problems were recorded in the Brin area in Certosa, in Piazza Montano in Sampierdarena and in the area of Via Milano in Di Negro. The lower part of via delle Gavette is closed to traffic due to the collapse of a part of the retaining wall.
The tragedy in the district of Oregina touched upon due to the collapse of a tree in the gardens of an apartment building in via Bassano. Fortunately, there was no one at that time and there are no injuries.
The tenants involved and the administration of the condominium had repeatedly urged the Municipality to carry out the necessary maintenance given that the plant is part of a grove in the Salvatore Marozzelli pass. The area has been secured by the fire brigade.
