One of my favorite destinations, the Cinque Terre, was devastated by heavy rains, flooding, and mudslides today. Apparently, much of Monterosso is destroyed and Vernazza is in ruins. Here is a link to a video aired on RAI TV in Italy.
Here is a photo of the muddy water rushing down the street in Vernazza. What you see here is the point where the harbor square meets with the beach. Normally, there are brightly colored fishermen boats and several outdoor restaurants (in the upper area in the photo). The red car is actually on the “sandy” beach area.
