Piedmont calls for a state of emergency for bad weather. Two victims in the Alessandria area


A taxi driver missing since yesterday evening in the Alessandria area was found dead, struck in the last hours by a violent wave of bad weather. The sources of rescuers make it known.

The body of the man, who had left Genoa to conduct a client in the Serravalle area, was found in Capriata, Villa Carolina. The car was overwhelmed by the water of a stream that flooded. Instead, the client had already been found alive, a British representative who was on his way to a golf club.

Another tragedy has taken place in Strambino. Along the provincial road 81, an 81-year-old pensioner from Vische (Turin), Germano Costa, lost control of his car and ended up in the meadows overturning. He died instantly. Useless all the help. Injured his 76-year-old wife who was transported to the hospital in Ivrea. The dynamics of the accident is being examined by the Carabinieri of Strambino. The cause of the accident may have been the asphalt made slippery by the heavy rains of the last few hours.

Instead, the farmer dispersed with the tractor in Mormese, on the border between Novese and Ovadese, always in the Alessandria area, was found and given to the medical staff.
