The worst « Acqua alta » (tide peaks) in 50 years for Venice

La Serenissima

Four episodes of "acqua alta" (tide peaks) and an exceptional flood created a very complicated situation in the Italian city of Venice. Especially in the evening of November 12, recorded as the second worst in history.

The Pléiades satellite acquired an image on November, 14th, which is presented beside a previous image acquired earlier this year, on February, 13th.
