Hope no one has been badly impacted by this, only heavy rain and very, very low cloud here...

Great link Steve (as usual), we are in a similar situation to weather wise, woken at 3am to quite a display of power !

Same here Vicino. Luckily the power only dropped for a few secs. Think we must have got the edge of the storm!!

My flooded underground garage

Post by JulianaAlice on Sat Oct 05, 2013 3:50 pm

Oh no.  Every time there is extremely heavy rain in Lunigiana, our condominium underground carpark and garages flood.  The pumps cannot cope with inundation, and ground water seeps in through the earthquake seals, and our underground carpark turns into a swimming pool.  Actually, it is quite impressive. The water is crystal clear.  The white tiles of the floor and walls are set off to perfection, spotless and gleaming through the water. 

Actually, it is a nuisance because we dare not leave a car down there in our absence, especially during winter, for fear of flood.   Our electrical and garden appliances have to be stored on hooks well above the potential waterline in our individual garage. An Italian neighbour lost a freezer full of produce and all his gear for wine making and meat cutting on one particular Christmas deluge. (He uses the garage as a sort of cantina!).

Blimey, an indoor pool !  Sad 

I recall a house that we rented in Santa Vittoria in Matenano, that had a below ground level kitchen and storage (cellar) area.

Whenever it was very wet, the water would seep (slowly) into the cellar area, but it never got flooded as such, just very wet walls.

I commiserate greatly with your situation JulianaAlice, I assume insurance will not go near that one ?

Good Luck,
