It’s a sad day for my friends on Lipari, and another reminder that autumn brings the rainy season and the potential for violent storms. This is sadly reminiscent of the floods in Messina in 2011, and the Cinque Terre last October, but fortunately there hasn’t been any reported loss of life on Lipari.

In the last years these autumn rains became so dangerous in the area. In addition to what happened to Lipari, there have been minor consequences in the area where three people died last year. It takes more work to prevent all of this.

These autumn rains are very dangerous - Remember the 2009 mudslides? Shoddy construction and disrespect for building codes doesn't help the situation.

Best wishes to all the people on Lipari....

We are booked at the Hotel Mea in about 10 days - is that area of Lipari affected? Should we cancel our reservations and make other plans?

I am also going to Lipari on the 27th. Even if hotels are open and the ferries are running, is it going to be pleasant to be there right now? I could change my plans.

Thanks!

That was sad news really.... At least there were no casualties. Wish the 'Liparians' best of luck. Hope Aktea did not suffer any damages!
