 People walk in a flooded Saint Mark Square during a period of seasonal high water in Venice, Italy. 70 per cent of the lagoon city has been flooded by waters rising 149 centimetres (more than 58 1/2 inches) above sea level. Venice frequently floods when high winds push in water from the lagoon, but Monday's (October 29) levels are exceptional and forecast to rise even higher, to 160 centimetres (nearly 63 inches) by mid-afternoon.
