180-KPH Winds Down Cranes in Genoa, Cause Substantial Damage at Ports in Liguria, Italy 2018-11-07

Dear Valued Customer,
 
Winds gusting up to 180 KPH hammered Italy’s northwest coastline on October 29 and 30, with flood waves topping 10 m crashing onto the shore, causing substantial damage at ports in Liguria.
 
Two cranes at the Genoa port were damaged; it is not clear yet whether either or both can be repaired or will have to be scrapped.
 
The most serious damage occurred in the Port of Savona, where about 1,000 new cars were destroyed by a fire at an auto terminal. The terminal was inundated by giant waves that are believed to have short-circuited the power supply.
 
Further, the quay was damaged and part of a berth is unusable pending reports from divers to assess whether the damage is superficial or requires major repair work.
 
Seventy metres of quay wall was also destroyed in Vado Ligure, and some sheds and storage tanks at the port were seriously damaged.
