Cyclone Cleopatra struck the northern section of Italian island of Sardinia on 19 November 2013. A state of emergency was declared by the Italisn government after at least 18 people were killed by a cyclone. 450 millimetres of rain fell in 90 minutes, resulting in rivers bursting their banks. Cars were swept away and bridges collapsed in the towns of Olbia and near Nuoro.[1]

A police officer died when a bridge collapsed as he was escorting an ambulance over it.

The declaration of a state of emergency will allow resources to be freed up more quickly to reach devastated areas, with swathes of the island under muddy flood waters that covered cars and swamped houses, displacing 2,700 people.
