Bad weather after a short respite has returned to wipe out the municipalities of Asolano and Valcavasia: in the afternoon violent hailstorms over the municipalities of the Treviso foothills with grains up to three centimeters in diameter.
ASOLO. The Monte Grappa and Asolano areas were again hit by bad weather this afternoon, Saturday 31 July, with a record hailstorm. Before the worried eyes of the residents, the same scenes of a few days ago were repeated.
In fact, on Sunday, and in the days following at the beginning of the week, the repeated machine-gun shots of large ice grains had been added to the thunderstorms and violent gusts of wind. Due to atmospheric events, numerous activities have suffered damage: among the most affected the vineyards of the Asolana Docg, which estimated a loss of 30% of the harvest.
But also nurseries and infrastructures: both the church of Villa d’asolo and the headquarters of civil protection have been uncovered. In the last few hours the bad weather has made itself felt again, with the disturbing ticking of large ice grains, up to 3 cm in diameter.
Real stones: against cars, roofing and external furnishings of homes, bars and restaurants. In sharing the images of ice “bullets” on social media, the mayor of Asolo Mauro Migliorini expressed his discouragement in this way: “I would have had enough post silent …”.
Among the most affected areas Borso del Grappa, Pieve del Grappa and Castelcucco. The locality of Cima Grappa was also affected, where tomorrow, Sunday 1 August, the traditional event of commemoration of the fallen in the presence of General Francesco Paolo Figliuolo is scheduled.
