Aerial Footage Shows Destruction From Deadly Sardinia Flooding

Three people were killed in Bitti, a town in Sardinia’s Nuoro province, on November 28 after heavy rain caused severe flooding, ANSA reported.

Among those killed were a 55-year-old farmer whose vehicle was overwhelmed by a landslide and flooding, a 90-year-old man who drowned in his home, and an 89-year-old woman whose home was hit by the flooding and mudflow, the outlet reported.

This aerial footage showing the destruction in Bitti was released by Italy’s fire service, who said it was captured at around 3pm on Sunday.

The severe weather, which prompted a red weather alert on the island, caused flooding and landslides in other parts of Sardinia and resulted hundreds of rescues, officials said. Credit: Vigili del Fuoco via Storyful
