(ANSA) - Turin, August 13 - Authorities issued a weather advisory as a cold front bringing rain, hail, and gale-force winds swept across Italy’s northern regions Wednesday. In Piedmont, flooding was reported in the provinces of Biella, Vercelli, Novara, Verbania, and the shores of Lago Maggiore. In Lombardy, volunteer rescuers evacuated hikers trapped by swollen streams and submerged bridges. In the coastal Liguria region, authorities warned of thunderstorms and high seas. The weather is expected to improve later on Wednesday, with temperatures at a low 14 degrees through Thursday. Italy has been battered by an unusually stormy summer, with torrential rains wreaking damage in many regions, costing farmers millions of euros and contributing to a slump in seaside tourism this season.
