Venice flooding: Tourists swim as Italia

On Nov. 12, reports about Venice came flooding in that the Italian city is now 70 percent underwater. While this may seem like a deterrent to tourism, many enjoy the water action and have taken to swimming in the sauce made by the rain that has gone on for three days.

Yes, despite the inconvenience and distraction in Venice, Reuters was quick topoint out that in St. Marks Square, “Tourists in swimming [suits] sat at café tables under the water,”

This particular drowning is one for the history books, being called “the sixth-worst flood in the city since 1872.”
