On a related note, red and orange weather alerts were issued for the regions of Liguria, Piedmont, Emilia e Romagna, Tuscany, and Sardinia on Thursday, October 11. Thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected in these areas. Associated transportation disruptions and power outages are possible due to potential flooding and infrastructural damage.
There are concerns regarding maintenance of road infrastructure in Italy, notably following the collapse of the Morandi bridge in Genoa on August 14, which left 43 dead.
