Eight people have lost their lives after Storm Ciarán wreaked damage on Tuscany on November 2 and 3. Prato, Campi Bisenzio, Montemurlo, Quarrata, Seano and Pontedera, among other coastal towns such as Viareggio and Marina di Massa, continue their rescue efforts and begin to clean up the damage, which is estimated to cost in the range of 300 million euro.
We will be updating this list as more ways to help become clear.
