Acqua alta and snow in Venice

The city of Venice has been hit by snowstorms and a 143cm aqua alta - leading to scenes looking more like the arctic than Italy. To make matters worse, the storms hit just before both the final day of Carnivale and Valentines data.

Images are available from Venezia Today and The Guardian, among others. The video below is courtesy

Acqua alta forecasts are available from the ICPSM website. For an explanation of why these floods occur, see the website of our sister project, eSurge Venice.
