Thanks to BBC News for above information
Hi Roberta, Tiziana and Venerato,
I saw the BBC News today and found out that some Italian cities, in Tuscany and UmBriahad very severe floods. I feel bad about the disaster caused by the floods, loosing properties and lives. I wonder if the three of you are affected by the floods. I hope you all are O.K.
My husband and I want to send our best wishes to all of you and all Italians.
Ing & John, (14.11.2012)
Thanks for your mail. We live in Abruzzo and we are far from those areas but I know some people living in Umbria and Tuscany. I phone them yesterday and even if there are lots of problems with schools too, they are safe and their houses didn’t have any damages. As in the past years this is a period when rain causes lots of troubles sometimes also because we build houses, roads etc, where we shouldn’t do.
Hoping everything is o.k.with you two, I send you my warmest wishes,
P.S. I’m sending you a map of Italy; even if Umbria and Tuscany seem near Abruzzo our towns are at least 300 km. from the flooded areas.
I am so glad you are O.K. I hope Roberta and Venerato are safe from the flood also. Thanks for the colorful map. Now I know where your hometown is.
After I went to BBC News to get information I could not resist putting the information together for others who visit my website to see that there are troubles somewhere else in this world.
“As in the past years this is a period when rain causes lots of troubles sometimes also because we build houses, roads etc, where we shouldn’ do.”
I agree with your comment above but in some countries such as Philippine, Brazil and other countries that have large poor populations who have to build their living places in unsafe areas, so almost every year we will hear that people die and lose their little properties from floods and land slides. The only thing that can help them is good government planning. Some scientists comment about global warming that is caused by humans that produce too much carbon dioxide which causes the earth to get warmer therefore it affects the atmosphere. These problems may be causing the severe weather that we see happening all over the world.
Please take care of yourself and your family and I hope that there is help for all the continuing problems people suffer in this world.
All the best,
