Landslides and Flooding in Cinque Terre

I was planning to tempt the mid-November weather Gods and visit Cinque Terre for the first time later this month. That’s not going to happen now since they beat me by about three weeks.  Severe storms hit the area on October 25, triggering massive flooding and landslides. Most severely hit were Vernazza and Monterosso; I was planning to stay in the former.

Travel writer Rick Steves has a good write-up of the devastation that affected his favorite corner of Italy on his website here and here. He also posted a slideshow focused on Vernazza, including some before and after shots.
