Bad weather, the mayor Pogliese announces: schools and shops closed Thursday and Friday in Catania

Schools of all levels and commercial activities still closed for another two days in Catania due to the bad weather emergency. The schools will therefore eventually be closed for a week in the city due to the continuous weather alert. An unprecedented thing. “In 49 years of life in this city I had never seen such intense phenomena. Schools and non-essential commercial activities will remain closed tomorrow and Friday, at least as far as Catania is concerned, then the other mayors will be the ones to make the appropriate assessments ». This was stated, meeting the press at the end of a meeting in the Prefecture, the mayor of Catania Salvo Pogliese, who added: “With the Civil Protection, the Prefecture and the police we are a team, we are fighting in an absolutely synergistic way within an emergency context such as that of the past few hours “.

“I have been in the historic center and in some suburban districts and I have never seen similar images of devastation: emergency phenomena that have determined in this specific case millimeters of rain never recorded”.

«The images of the Fish Market – he continued – are emblematic: it was not a river in flood, it was a lake that submerged the level of Piazza Duomo. I thank the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, the national Parliament and all those who have expressed solidarity with our city from Veneto to Lombardy, from the president of the national ANCI Antonio Decaro to the president of Anci Sicilia Leoluca Orlando ».

Now the mayor is back to work and in the next few hours he should issue the ordinance that closes schools and non-essential commercial activities.
