Italy flooding kills six people in Livorno


At least six people have been killed after heavy rainstorms and flooding in the Italian city of Livorno.

Four members of a family were killed when their basement apartment flooded. Italian newspaper Il Tirreno reports that two parents and their son died.

One girl was rescued by her grandfather, but he died when he returned to attempt for his other family members, the newspaper said.

Pictures from the city showed large areas underwater and extensive damage.

One resident, Piero Caturelli, said he had never seen such bad weather.
