Italy: Violent rainstorm leaves Palermo streets under water

Palermo streets remained flooded on Thursday, following a heavy storm which hit the city on Wednesday. Footage shows a residential area near the famous Ballaro market, with cars surrounded by rising waters. Two people were feared dead and two children were taken to hospital with hypothermia, after being stuck inside a car with their parents in an underpass. Palermo mayor Leoluca Orlando said more than one metre of rainfall hit the city in less than two hours on Wednesday, in what has been described the heaviest rain in more than 200 years.
