VENICE, Italy - Seventy percent of central Venice is under water, due to heavy rain and seas whipped up by strong winds.

High tide in the lagoon city has reached its sixth-highest level since records started being kept 150 years ago.

News reports say other parts of northern and central Italy are also being affected by the stormy weather.
