Off the coast of the Ligurian town of Rapallo has played Apocalypse: the storm destroyed dozens moored in the port boats, among whom were superyacht the son of Silvio Berlusconi (Silvio Berlusconi) — 37,8-foot motor boat Il Suegno from Ferretti Custom Line 2010.
According to the Director of the port of Marina Scarpino (Marina Scarpino), the port was moored 390 boats. The elements have not spared more than half.
The storm hit the port Carlo Riva last night. Huge waves and wind pushed each other yachts that sank, crashed into the shore and crashed on the rocks.
“I saw only the silhouettes of the yachts they crashed in the dark. A horrible sight!” — the eyewitness told.
To calculate the amount of damage to the port, while it is impossible, but when you consider the cost of all the broken yacht, it is already possible to speak about several millions of euros.
The element is not spared the entire coastal zone Rapallo and other areas of the Gulf of Tigullio, reports Il Messaggero. Also badly damaged the road to Portofino — famous resort was in isolation. Genoa airport Cristoforo Colombo is closed, all flights cancelled.
The last time something similar happened at the resort in 2000, when the sea broke through the dike in the harbour, but this time the element of carousing stronger. Particularly affected are small boats and boats of average size. After the tragic events in Rapallo built a dam height of 6.5 meters, but even she could not bear the pressure of a ten-meter waves.
October was rich in natural disasters. In the beginning of the month a powerful hurricane Michael struck the U.S. Gulf coast. It was the strongest storm in the last 50 years, recorded on the mainland of America.
