Rising Water in Venice, Italy via Zoom

Toni McKeen describes The “Aqua Alta”  or high water that has been a problem for the city of Venice for centuries.  What causes the flooding, how it affects their daily lives, the ingenious ways on how they deal with it, its long term effects on the city,  and how the city is fighting back are topics that will be discussed with amazing before and during the flooding photos of the streets and canals including amazing photos of the most severe flooding, the second worst which occurred when I was there on one trip.  I will also explain the warning system they have in place.  Wear your hip boots!
