Cogne: Floods and Landslides

The Valle d’Aosta Functional Center has reported floods of the main streams in the Cogne valley. The weather situation is expected to persist until the early hours of tomorrow. The village of Cogne is isolated due to a landslide, with debris flows along five ravines and the flooding of the Valnontey stream. The alert level in the Gran Paradiso valleys has been raised from yellow to orange.


Cervinia: Road Closed and Town Isolated

Cervinia is isolated due to a landslide that has closed the regional road of Valtournenche. The regional administration expects the road to reopen with alternating one-way traffic in the coming hours. The landslide occurred downstream of Epinel, disrupting the electrical network and telephone communications.

Ossola: Storm and Landslides

A violent storm has hit the Ossola valleys in northern Piedmont, causing landslides and roadblocks. The Val Divedro was particularly affected by a landslide between San Domenico di Varzo and Nembro in Varzo, which trapped numerous tourists. At the Simplon Pass, a debris flow affected the Swiss side of the road, leading to the closure of the access routes.
