Florence, September 26, 2021 – A Sunday when Florence comes to terms with bad weather. The yellow alert brought heavy rain around every 5.30 p.m.. Wind mixed with rain has lashed different areas of the city leading to the tail of several trees. In particular on Viale Giovine Italia and on Viale dei Mille. Several plants have collapsed in the face of the fury of the weather.
Fortunately there were no injuries, but circulation problems were many, with slowdowns due to the plants that invaded the roadway. Due to a fallen tree, Via dei Bastioni was closed.
Damage to the stalls of the “Campo di Marte in Fiera” event, a market that was taking place, at the moment of the storm, in the square of the Mandela Forum. Many of the gazebos flew onto Viale Manfredo Fanti, as well as many merchandise, which ended up on the asphalt. Difficulty in viale Fanti, due to damage to the market, for circulation.
At work the fire brigade teams of the command Florence. The municipal police regulate the traffic. Very strong hail in several areas of the province, above all in Mugello. Grains as big as golf balls fell on Mugello, damaging some cars. Many houses in the dark between the Sieci and the Galchiere, on both sides of the Arno.
