Weather alerts are often a bit pessimistic, this is well known. Not that it's a fault of the administration or of the Civil Protection, mind you. The weather it is terribly difficult to predict due to the myriad variables involved, but this time all can be said except that it was not justified.

Cyclone Poppea hit our region, bringing Naples to grips with very high waves, very strong winds and considerable inconvenience.

A force indeed awesome that of the cyclone Poppea, even more evident in video registered by the American Consulate in Naples, which is based right on the waterfront.

In the video you can see how the waves break until the road surface gets wet, accompanied by a very strong wind that put motorists in serious difficulty.

There is attention to the tree structure of the city.
