Cyclone Cleopatra: Massive Rainstorm Killed 18 In Sardinia

A massive rainstorm by Cyclone Cleopatra caused bad flash floods in Sardinia, Italy on Tuesday.

Bridges collapsed and cars were swept away by the  gushing flood water.

Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean and is one of Italy’s autonomous regions.

At least eighteen people were killed by the disaster while some others are still missing.

Italy’s civil protection chief, Franco Gabrielli, said the death toll may rise as crews reach isolated areas in the countryside where homes are submerged.

The northeastern city of Olbia was worst hit and Olbia Mayor, Gianni Giovannelli said that the water level raised up to 3 meters high (10 feet) in some part of the city.
