Acqua Alta in Venice December 3rd 2010, 136 cm

Here are some of the images of yesterday’s Acqua Alta , which rose up to 136 cm, taken by people living in Venice. The water was so high, that in Saint Marks Square they could not even put up the walkways!

Look at the video as well, to see how the Venetian just cope with this!
