Venice, on high alert with a strong tide that flooded the entire city  


Venice is on alert for a strong tide, known as "high water", which has already reached 156 centimeters above sea level and could reach 160, a figure not recorded since 1979 and which would cause flooding throughout the city.

Due to abundant rainfall in recent days, the "high water" and affects 40% of the lagoon city, and according to the data center forecast tidal Venice City Council on Monday may exceed 90% of territory.

If it reaches 160 cm, the city is completely flooded, say estimates from the center of the tides.

The water level continues to rise, mainly due to the sirocco, the wind blowing towards the south, and drag the waters to Venice.

Since this morning, the sirens sounded in the city to warn of the danger of high water to the Venetians and tourists. The historic figure of the high tide was registered on November 4, 1966, when the waters reached 1.94 meters.

What next?
