Sardinia counts dead, surveys damage after cyclone

The death toll from storms in Sardinia rose to at least 14 on Tuesday (November 19) , with many areas still out of reach of rescue services, the governor of the Italian island said. Overnight, Cyclone Cleopatra caused rivers to burst their banks, sweeping away cars and flooding homes. Sardinians assessed the damaged wreaked by the cyclone, with many areas around the northeastern town of Olbia remaining underwater. With many roads closed on the island it is proving difficult for emergency services to make a clear assessment of the damage suffered. Officials said people have escaped to hotels, but there are thousands whose homes have been damaged by the floods. So far hundreds of people have been moved from their homes.
