Catania: Two dead as rare storm floods streets of Sicilian city

Flooding triggered by a powerful storm has overwhelmed the Sicilian city of Catania, killing at least two people, writes BBC.

Fierce storms battered southern Italy for a third day on Tuesday, leaving roads completely submerged in parts of the island of Sicily.
Dramatic video from Catania showed water gushing through the streets as floods engulfed the city.
Forecasters say eastern Sicily is being hit by a rare Mediterranean hurricane, known as a Medicane.
