According to the Italian news agency ANSA, water levels were 40 inches (103 centimetres) above normal early on Monday, and were thought to have reached about 55 inches (140 centimetres) on Wednesday. San Marco Square, more usually thronged with tourists, was largely deserted. Makeshift footbridges were created to allow people to walk above floodwaters. The water levels on Wednesday evening had nearly topped the rubbish bins throughout San Marco Square.
