It appears there is a “semi” orchestrated effort to begin the clean up in Vernazza and Monterosso. My sources say that mobile phone service has been restored, however phone, electrical, gas, and other utilities are still not working.
Roads leading into the Cinque Terre are closed. The train tracks have been cleared and some intermitting service is running from Monterosso to Corniglia. They say the train is not stopping in Vernazza for fear of it bringing looters to the area. The main mode of transportation for now, is boat service originating from La Spezia.
Here is some video taken from the breakwaters/harbor in Vernazza. If you have ever visited Vernazza, you will recognize the church (on the left) and Ristorante Gianni on the right. Notice the “harbor” is loaded with mud and debris.
