Venice, Italy hit with Historic Flooding

Shocking pictures show the historic St Mark’s Basilica under water – as the regional governor described a scene of “apocalyptic devastation”. “Venice is on its knees.. the art, the basilica, the shops and the homes, a disaster.. The city is bracing itself for the next high tide.”

 Some brave Venetians tried to go about their business this morning
