Nov 2018 Flooding in Palermo

Nov 2018 Flooding in Palermo

Hi,

Does anyone know exactly where the floods have affected Palermo please? I’ve booked a surprise trip to Sicily on the 15th Nov 2018 for my husbands birthday. Only booked flights so far, so wondering where the floods are affecting as I’m about to book accommodation. Was thinking a city break in Palermo, but wondering if this is a good idea now? Please Help!

Thank you

It sounded from news reports that the worst of it -- at least where a dozen or so people were killed -- was in mountainous areas near, but outside Palermo. Unfortunately, it is the time of year when there can be heavy rains and flash flooding just about anywhere in Italy that can affect country and/or city, so pay attention to weather reports and forecasts while there, especially if you plan on driving in the countryside.

Yes, but Palermo and Mondello were also affected.

It has been a nasty autumn.
