The violent storms that this morning are hitting southern Calabria and the Strait of Messina, caused a flash flood in Scylla. In the delightful village of the Costa Viola, a few kilometers from Reggio Calabria, the fury of the water has destroyed everything: it has invaded the houses and transformed the streets into flooding rivers, dragging dozens of cars downstream to the beach of the Marina Grande, as we can see in the images accompanying the article.

The village, populated by thousands of tourists in this period, is on its knees. Heavy thunderstorms have unloaded so far 85mm of rain in Torre Faro (Messina), 78mm in Catona (Reggio Calabria), 77mm in Curcuraci (Messina), 55mm in Palmi and Solano Superiore, 47mm at the Villaggio del Pino (Melia di Scilla), 48mm in San Saba (Messina) and in Rosarno, 39mm in Bagnara Calabra, 38mm in Scilla, 23ì5mm in Gioia Tauro. Heavy rain also in Reggio city (7mm at the moment, but rapidly increasing) and temperature plummeted to + 19 ° Cas if we were in the middle of autumn.

Heavy rains are also affecting Ricadi (see photo in the sliding gallery) and the Vibonese. Today in the province of Reggio Calabria, in Roccella Jonica, the highly anticipated Jova Beach Party should be held with over 30 thousand appearances on the beach starting at 15:30: the great event is at risk due to bad weather that will continue in the next few hours, moving right along the Ionian belt of the province so far spared from bad weather.
