Out of season flooding hits Italy's Venice

STORY: The sunset tide was not high enough to activate the Mose flood barriers, launched in 2020 to protect the fragile city from flooding during the high water.

Venice's floods are caused by a combination of factors exacerbated by climate change - from rising sea levels and unusual high tides to land subsidence that has pushed down the city ground level.

They usually occur in autumn and winter months.
