These days, the famous Venice Carnival takes place in Venice. Thousands of tourists from all over the world flock to see the mesmerizing action. But the general fun was somewhat overshadowed by a natural cataclysm. Numerous canals were left without water, and gondolas and water taxis were mired in mud.
Everyone associates Venice with the famous canals. This time, due to the sharp drop in the water level, the city is a rather depressing and completely unromantic sight.
By the way, this has been repeated for the third year in a row. But in 2018, the water level fell by as much as 70 cm. This is due to the lack of rain, a cold snap and a supermoon that occurred on January 31st. It dramatically affected the tides.
Gondoliers complain that they are temporarily out of work, and scientists are sounding the alarm about the ancient brickwork at the base of the foundations of the houses. It may start to crumble.
This natural anomaly threatens to spoil the appearance of Venice over time, but it is nothing in comparison with. 7 largest natural disasters of the last decade.
