As Italy tallies the cost of the catastrophic floods, more settlements are being evacuated.


In the wake of the devastating floods that have killed at least 17 people in the Italian region of Tuscany, dozens more villages have been evacuated.

The floods, which hit the region late last week, caused rivers to burst their banks and flooded homes and businesses.

The death toll is expected to rise as the full extent of the damage becomes clear, and the Italian government has declared a state of emergency in the region.

Rescue teams are searching for victims and helping those who have been displaced.

The military has also been deployed to assist with the emergency response.

The flooding has caused significant damage to infrastructure, with roads and bridges destroyed, and crops destroyed.

The Italian government has pledged to provide financial aid to those affected by the floods, and is working to rebuild the region.

The floods come as Italy is already struggling with an economic crisis, and the damage caused by the floods is expected to only add to the country’s woes.
