Sardinia floods kill at least 16 as Italy declares state of emergency on island
from The Guardian
At least 16 people, including a family of four trapped in their ground-floor flat, have died in Sardinia after torrential rains and a cyclone caused rivers to burst their banks. The Italian prime minister, Enrico Letta, described the fatalities as a "national tragedy," and the government declared a state of emergency on the island after six months' worth of rain fell within 24 hours.
