After a long, hot and humid (yet rainless) June it sounds like things are about to change up. A yellow (level 2) storm warning is in effect for Wednesday, June 28, 2017.
Just to be clear, this is the key for the color coded storm warnings:
Green = Slim to none
Yellow = Slight danger
Orange = Dangerous
Red = Extremely dangerous
What does this mean for visitors to the Cinque Terre?
- All hiking trails within the Cinque Terre National Park will be officially closed during the storm warning.
- In case of torrential downpours, stay away from low lying areas or potential flood zones.
- In case of rough seas, stay away from the water’s edge.
- Use prudence.
