In Europe, Italy is alarmed by the tragedies caused by floods resulting from climate change.
The situation in the Emilia-Romagna Region, one of the most famous in Italy, is a lesson we can learn for the future considering climate change.
The Jethro Civil Diplomat and Area Coordinator from Italy-Milan, Mr. Bruno Romeo, and Bishop Jorge Silva support residents by providing clothing and food, sanitary support, and removing mud and wood left by floods in Ravenna.
Mr. Bruno Romeo is the General Secretary of the Workers Union National Headquarters and the Security Officer and Coordinator of the Ecozoofil Environmental Guard.
The Italians realize that the floods were also the result of human activity on the ground since the 1960s, in short, it is not only a matter of now.
But now everything has changed. Suddenly, everyone finds themselves vulnerable.
100,000 people had to leave their homes, and 23,000 were homeless after the floods.
Floods cause billions of euros in damage at the start of the tourist season. Local authorities claimed that the water that fell in 36 hours is the equivalent of six months of rainfall.
The streets were submerged, and residents sought refuge on the roofs of their homes.
The water also covered huge agricultural areas, devastating the crops of more than 5,000 farms and putting 50,000 agricultural jobs at risk.
After the rain in the Emilia-Romagna, the mud remains, and emergency services continue to work with reinforcements from firefighters, civil defense agents and soldiers, and Civil Diplomats across Italy.
