Italy’s top disaster official: Whole country is ‘at risk’ – POLITICO

Italy's top disaster official says 94 percent of Italian municipalities are at risk of flooding, landslides and coastal erosion. A mudslide Saturday killed eight people on the island of Ischia, with 126 millimeters of rain falling in six hours. Critics say politicians' response to the disaster is hypocritical, pointing to an amnesty signed by the 5Star-League government in 2018.
