Firefighters at work on the Lungarno after the collapse

FLORENCE, ITALY – A 200-metre-long hole opened up in a road running next to the Arno River in central Florence early on Wednesday May 25, 2016, on Lungarno Torrigiani, between the worldwide famous Ponte Vecchio and Ponte alle Grazie bridges.

«No one is injured, there’s just damage, damages are estimated in 5 million Euros,» said Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella last night. Around 20 cars parked in the area were taken into the hole. The residents of two apartment buildings next to it have been told to leave their homes as a precaution. Firefighters with the Civil Defence and other law enforcement agencies have been working around the clock to secure the area. The huge hole have been caused by a burst water pipe.

The collapse of the Lungarno has reminded the Florentines that 50 years ago, exactly in November 1966, Florence has suffered one of the worst floods in its history.
