Vernazza Update flood – mudslide before and after video

Video showing Vernazza before and after the flooding and mudslides.


Probably the best footage from the center of town


Cars from the upper lot being washed down through town.  Notice the water level, this is just the beginning of the flood, the water will rise to the second level of the house across the street within minutes.


The same view, but now the water has risen dramatically


Again, the same view but now the morning after the flood


The town’s bus from the upper parking lot being destroyed


For anyone who has never visited Vernazza, this video was taken several months before the flood.  This is one reason I fell in love with this place.  Thank you Rick Steves for sharing!
