Genoa battered by flash floods

Genoa battered by flash floods

Officials say at least four people have died in flash floods that again swept through Genoa and Italy's western coastline following torrential rains.
News reports on Friday said that the dead included two children as floodwaters poured through Genoa for the second time in eight days, sweeping up cars, trees and furniture from low-lying homes. Officials said two rivers broke their banks.
Much of northern Italy was hit by heavy rains and flooding was also reported in Venice.
At least 10 people died in the floods that swept the sea coast near Genoa on Oct. 28.
