Re: High Tides in Venice

Is such an acqua bassa common? When was the latest important 'acqua bassa'?

Really low tides are not a common phenomenon: before the “acqua bassa” of December 2016, the latest recorded “acqua bassa” happened in 2008, 8 years before.

Re: High Tides in Venice

Believe it or not, Mr Walsh, I was in Venice this weekend observing first hand.
I have a picture which will answer all your questions as to the real cause of all this flooding.
.Will post ASAP.

PS: the locals were most worried about the wind direction.
