Damage to warehouses and cars. Fiume Veneto, Azzano Decimo and Chions are the most affected municipalities. The mayors have already written to President Fedriga

After the hailstorm, the region will help us. The appeal comes from the mayor of Fiume Veneto, the municipality most affected by the strong storm this morning.

The first citizen Jessica Canton has already written to President Fedriga because damage is everywhere in the area: private homes, roofs, photovoltaic panels, destroyed cars and crops, vineyards, plantations and gardens.

Treats as big as tennis balls. Like mandarins, says Marco Putto, the mayor of Azzano Decimo, overturned from the clouds over western Friuli in a hail of about 15 minutes, which began around 7 am, when luckily most of the residents were still at home.

A hailstorm game in small grains and with the passing of the minutes it became more and more violent, but which did not affect other areas in the region, so much so that the regional civil protection contingent was not activated

Dozens of requests for help from the local fire brigade command, increasing with the passing of the hours. The areas most affected were the hamlets of Bannìa and Pra Turlone, with damage also recorded to large barns and industrial warehouses with holes in the roof.

“Beyond private insurance, this is an extraordinary situation, the damage is really huge” the words of the mayor of Fiume Veneto, Canton, who fears more rains arriving in the afternoon.

Also in Chions, the third location most affected by bad weather, especially in the Taiedo hamlet, is expected to make a definitive estimate of the damage. Most private individuals in these parts are insured, we are told by Azzano Decimo. In recent years there have been many and often violent thunderstorms, and the municipal administration has repeatedly intervened on the waterways to limit the hydrogeological risk.
