At least eight people died in flooding after violent rains lashed the Tuscan city of Livorno over the weekend, Italian rescue services said yesterday.

The body of a 67-year-old man, who had been reported missing since Sunday, was found yesterday, while the body of a 34-year-old woman had been found the day before.

Heavy rainstorms swept across the country overnight from Saturday to Sunday, with Livorno bearing the brunt of the flooding.

Four people from the same family were found dead in a flooded house in the city on Sunday, where 40 centimetres (16 inches) of rainfall in four hours transformed streets into rivers and washed away cars.
