Photo: Miguel Medina/AFP Three quarters of Venice was underwater yesterday as violent storms swept across Italy. The first high water of the autumn hit Venice Monday and emergency sirens blared across the lagoon city yesterday as tourists were evacuated from the centre. 75% of the city centre was underwater, officials said, after high tides and stormy weatherÂ caused waters in theÂ canal-ringed city to reach historic high levels. Yesterday visitors were barredÂ from an inundated St. Mark's Square and police carried children to safety as the "acqua alta" (high water) passed the 110 cm above sea level mark - at which citizens are alerted to potential danger Â– and then kept rising. https://www.thelocal.it/20181030/tourists-evacuated-as-venice-flooding-reaches-historic-levels
