Watchful weather, in Genoa the operations on the Morandi bridge were suspended
Continue operations of removal from the river bed until 20 tonight, when it is then evacuated for safety reasons. "There is no assessment of the red zone which is already sufficiently large in the absence of people for a collapse or collapse. "This was stated by the President of the Liguria region and the commissioner delegated to the Morandi bridge emergency relief Giovanni Toti today in the press conference where the specific protection measures for the area of the collapse of the viaduct, in the river bed of the Polcevera stream, were planned for the next few hours, when the yellow warning for strong thunderstorms on Liguria begins.
At present, the regional and municipal civil protection does not provide for an extension of the red zone, which is prohibited under the collapsed viaduct.
"With a very special situation there – also the Regional Council for Civil Protection Giacomo Giampedrone – we believe that this is initially sufficient measures, everything that will be taken later will be the result of what will happen".
"It is clear that the assessment is fairly important compared to what could be dragged into the creek in the direction of the sea in Val Polcevera, but we do not think that we should now be extra cautious for the area compared to this one".
