The Devastating Flood in Cinque Terre'

As posted, October 3rd, we reposed in the beautiful Cinque Terre'. We enjoyed three days in this most beautiful place. Vernazza is our town.
On October 26 , the reigon waas bombarded with heavy rain and massive flooding,turning our dear fishing village into a massive mud slide from it's vineyards upon the mountains and hills surrounding, down thorugh the street decending to the harbor, a mighty river flooding up to the top of the train station platform, bringing dirt, rubble as well as cars through the village and out to the water's edge and into the harbor, filling it full of debris.
I sat horrified watching video clips and with tear filled eyes as our village was devistated, my heart is broken for the community.
I present this video to you in hopes that you might help.
We stayed with Guiseppi at the B&B in the piazza by the harbor. I will post the e-mail address for Martina and her family shortly.
