Road Collapses Following Landslide in Northern Italy

A stretch of roadway collapsed in Italy’s Savona province on November 24, the Italian fire service said.

Footage shared by Vigili del Fuoco, the Italian fire service, shows the collapsed viaduct, which local media reported was caused by a landslide from the town of Madonna del Monte.

Firefighters said they were investigating if any cars were involved in the incident.

The collapse occurred as heavy rain hit the region over the weekend. A red alert was in place for Genoa and parts of the Liguria region as rivers broke their banks due to the rainfall. Public buildings were closed and outdoor events canceled for the day. Rail services were suspended. Credit: Vigili del Fuoco via Storyful
