Venice submerged under record unusual tides.
[link to www.brisbanetimes.com.au]

Tourists attached plastic bags to their legs or stripped off to take a dip in St Mark's Square in Venice on Sunday as rising sea waters surged through the lagoon city. High water measuring 1.49 metres above the normal level of the Adriatic came with bad weather that swept Italy at the weekend, causing floods in historic cities including Vicenza in Tuscany 400 kilometres further south.

Unreal!

Too bad that the Global Warming shills will use this to brainwash the sheeple.
What I knew as tangible and real was nothing more than a flimsy, thin sheet of a reality.
I come to know that the real "me" is a supersoul that is my true reality that resides in the spirit world.

From 2005:


Venice Dries Up!
Thursday, January 13, 2005

In Venice, Italy, gondolas are getting stuck on the dry bedsof the canals. Hotel docks are dangling in mid air. What?sgoing on here? Venice is drying up!

Venice, which usually has a few feet ofwater on the ground at high tide, has dried out due to lackof rainfall in the area. Rightnow, gondolas can onlytravel on the Grand Canal, Venice's largest and deepest.

From 2007:

Venice Canals Running Dry?

Late last year, unusually high tides drowned the city – and this week low tides “have been running as much as 70cm below normal.” This means that several of Venice’s smaller canals have dried up almost entirely, leaving some Venice gondolas stuck – at least until the water returns.

And I even have a picture: :cool2:

The residents are all wearing jackets and plastic bags (for cool weather), but the tourists are floating in bathing suits. Silly tourists!

"Venice's high water, said to be the sixth highest since 1872, flooded 70 per cent of the city."

So it's a once-every-25-years kind of phenomenon.

Years ago I visited Venice and the people there explained that the city had been slowly sinking for centuries. Not much longer to go til it's a memory.

Re: Venice submerged under record unusual tides.
<- writing from VENICE.....

nothin to see here, move along..... this is VERY normal to have Venice UNDERWATER at this time of the year....

What indeed is NOT normal is the height of the water level (such as 150cm recorded on Sunday), but this was however due to the SCIROCCO winds that were blowing here all day long and slightly increased the already high water level a notch above the NORMAL standard.

Furthermore, the actual construction site of the MOSE appears to influence the water level by not somehow trapping the incoming water for a bit too long so that the Venice area is kept with a bigger amount of water than usual where the tides constantly equal themselves with a steady water level. The building site (unofficially) appears to prolong the time necessary for the water to flow OUTWARDS so that at particular times the rise of the water level is aggravated.

We do NOT SUFFER any kind of sinking of the island or rise of sealevels around the area, it's just a COMMON and REGULAR habit we living close by and the residents of the islands are used to.
