I am sad to see this happening to a beautiful city. Please don't tell me they didn't see this coming.
VENICE, Italy (AP) - Strong southern winds pushed the Adriatic Sea into Venice again Tuesday, submerging parts of the lagoon city a day after an unusually high tide caused the worst flooding in 20 years.
Tuesday's tidal surge peaked at 3 feet, 4 inches (102 centimeters), well below Monday's 5 foot, 1-inch level (156 centimeters), which marked the fourth highest tide in the city's recorded history and the worst since 1986.
Still, the water Tuesday was high enough to flood the city's landmark St. Mark's Square and other low-lying areas.
