Blevio, 25 July 2021 – The landslide that hit Blevio, in the Sopravilla hamlet, it was one of the consequences more serious of the afternoon of bad weather that hit this afternoon on Comasco and Lecco area. Mud, stones, debris and even tree branches they invaded the street, isolating two fractions and forcing four families to leave their homes as a preventive measure. The Lariana state road is not practicable at the moment, but dozens of reports reached the firefighters of Como and Lecco, forcing to field all the teams, including the detachments of volunteers.
Almost all requests for help were for tree removals – come a Olgiate Comasco or Uggiate Trevano, where it is also the Lura stream came out of its banks – or dangerous situations caused by very violent gusts of wind. Numerous floods, in Zelbio a lightning strike and knocked out an ATM, in some areas it was feared that there would be gas leaks.
In some areas, such as a Bosisio Parini, in the Lecco area, large hail it has reached such an intensity that it creates the same effect as a heavy snowfall. In the late afternoon, heavy rain hit the Brianza Lecchese area above all, between Barzanò, Barzago, Missaglia and Monticello, also in this case with damage from hail, flooding, unsafe branches.
