One of the world's most romantic place - Venice suffers the worst flood in two decades on 2nd Dec, the water level was up to thigh high, the city was literally "submerged" in the flood water, needless to say the city was in total "Paralyzed" state. Duckboards and elevated walkways were set up for people to move around.
The cause of this floor was due to the heavy rain and strong wind that caused the water rose up to about 5ft high.
After the water retreated,a lot of cleaning works to be done as debris and sludge are everywhere. This probably not the end yet, as the bad weather coincide with the high tide there might be another flood coming.
