The city of Rome is sinking. The capital of the 7th industrialized country of the world to a stand still. Trees are falling on passerby and cars, streets are flooded, the underground stations are closed and flooded and the streets are turned into raging rivers of water and mud. There are rumors of two people drowned in the southern part of the city.

The reason for this is rain. A very heavy rain, yes. that went on for few hours (hours, not days) during the night. Rain.
