High cost of severe weather

The cost of the damage caused by last December’s heavy snow falls in the Liguria Region amounts of 23 million of euro. The regional authority has estimated and officially notified the amount of the damage to the Italian Department of Agriculture that will now be able to accept and process the claims from the many flowers growers and farmers that suffered from the severe weather. The Principality of Seborga was also affected by heavy snow falls and the Emergency Service had to intervene several times to clear roads and streets from the snow and ice.
