Bad weather in Lombardy
Bad weather in Lombardy: Flooded rivers and landslides due to thunderstorms. Fear for the dam of Enel of Pagnona. In Como the lakefront is closed
The poisonous tail of bad weather causes Lombardy to suffer after the violent storms on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday. At the moment it is an emergency in the province of Lecco . The rains have struck mainly the Valsassina and the eastern shore of the Lario causing serious damage. The overflow of the Enel dam-Pagnona, in Val Varrone, which is constantly monitored, is worrying. The most critical situation concerns the course of the Varrone stream and the municipalities of Premana , Pagnona , Casargo , Valvarrone , Vendrogno and Dervio and Primaluna , as well as Monteronewhich remained isolated on another slope due to a landslide on provincial road 63. In Dervio six hundred people were displaced and two hundred and twenty in Primaluna after the emergency that had taken place in the morning. The prefect of Lecco Michele Formiglio has summoned the Center for Coordination of Relief and the Province has asked the Lombardy Region for a declaration of a state of emergency of the territories affected by the effects of bad weather. Landslides and floods have also affected the provinces of Como , Brescia , Sondrio .
Emergency in Dervio, Premana and Primaluna
The Varrone and Pioverna streams are flooded at various points. After a morning of black-out, the circulation of trains between Colico and Delebio stopped after the 13th, even with the reduction in speed, due to the flooding of the Varrone river between the provinces of Sondrio and Lecco. The circulation between Dervio and Bellano is still blocked.
Very heavy hardships in particular in Premana, in the upper Val Varrone and in the northernmost area of Valsassina. A campsite has also been evacuated in Dervio. General mobilization for firefighters, carabinieri and civil protection emergency response units with hundreds of volunteers. Particularly significant material damage. No injuries are recorded at the moment.
Lake Como flooding
Because of the rains and the melting of the snow in Valtellina, the lake that flooded the Lungolario is flooded in Como. The raising of the water has forced the complete closure of the Lungolario traffic. At 13.30 it was 123 cm, three more than the flood threshold. The closure had repercussions on traffic and on the route of public transport. Today at 1pm more than a thousand cubic meters of water per second entered the lake, an incredibly high amount, compared to an outflow of 380 cubic meters per second
Landslides and broken roads in the province of Sondrio
Problems also in the province of Sondrio since this morning. With landslides, floods and broken roads. The most critical situation at the moment is in Valle Spluga. The Gallivaggio bypass, in the territory of San Giacomo Filippo, is flooded: mud and debris carried by the Liro torrent have invaded the roadway in both directions and therefore the transit is interrupted. A landslide, again due to violent storms, fell in the Isola area on the Spluga state road 36, between Campodolcino and Madesimo, now not easily reachable from Lombardy. In the province of Sondrio, fear also in Valtellina, particularly in Delebio, where the Lesina stream is swollen with water and is likely to overflow. On site, as in Valchiavenna, various means of the Fire Brigade and Anas personnel to evaluate also in this case the possible closure of the road. The Anas then ordered the closure of state road 36 at Samolaco due to the overflow of two streams, Lobia and Pisarota, which run along the roadway. Traffic is diverted to the Trivulzia provincial road. Noteworthy are the inconveniences to the roads in the area.
