The civil defense department once again issued a red weather warning to Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Bolzano in the northeast of the severely affected areas of severe weather, calling on the local government, police and fire departments, relief organizations and the population to actively prepare for emergency response.

According to the monitoring data of the civil defense department, the snow thickness of the Alps Dolomite and Dolomiti Mountains in the Autonomous Provinces of Belluno, Bolzano and Trent is currently 140 cm thick, and the avalanche risk in the next two days is close to the highest. No.

Days of heavy snow have caused serious damage to power facilities in several towns in Bolzano Province and caused local power outages. According to the requirements of the civil defense department, some of the high-risk sections of the Bolzano area, roads and railways will cease to operate from the 6th. In addition, the section from Vipiteno to Brennero in Bolzano Province was completely closed.

Authorities in an Austrian mountain village only a few kilometers away from Italy have evacuated residents, and the avalanche has caused the destruction of many houses.

Fortunately, no casualties were caused.

The water level of the Fiume Panaro, a western tributary of the Po River in Italy, has risen sharply since the 5th. As the flood peak flows through the Modena region, a bridge is seriously damaged and there is at risk of collapse at any time. At present, the local government has blocked the bridge and banned vehicles and pedestrians. At about 15:00 p.m. on the 5th, when the torrent flowed through the Nonantola area of Modena Province, it also caused the river to burst and flood a large amount of farmland.
