Italy has been hit by storms from north to south for a week now. Around 30 people died until Sunday. They drowned, were killed by trees, ripped by waves or buried by landslides. And the heavy rains are not over yet. In addition, large rainfall is expected in southwestern Europe and storms are threatening in France. The Balearic Islands will probably not be spared from new storms.

Already at night, a cold front moves from Portugal to Spain, bringing with it rain and snow. Another cold front takes place on Wednesday. Deep "Xena" continues its mischief on the southern side of the Alps and in Italy, especially a lot of rain is expected there in the northwest. Up to 250 liters per square meter can come together again. Since the rivers are already full and the soils are softened, further erosion and flooding are likely.
