According to the Italian daily Corriere della 먹튀검증Sera on the 28th (local time), snow began to blow in Sestriere, a mountainous area in the Alps near Turin, in the northwestern Piedmont state, from the morning of the day, and a snowfall of 5 cm was recorded.
Sestriere is the site of the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics skiing and is located at 1981m above sea level.
This area is originally a place where it snows a lot, but ‘Corriere della Sera’ reported that it was the first time in 10 years that it snowed in summer.
Residents unanimously said that it was strange that the temperature could change so drastically that there was a difference of more than 20 degrees in two days.
“There were several centimeters of snow on the lawn this morning,” said one resident. “Of course it is surprising. I have never seen snow fall here in August.”Vehicles and people were isolated because of the sudden snowfall. Firefighters and snowplows were deployed in the Colle del Nello area at an altitude of 2748 m. Firefighters moved the passengers in the vehicle to safety. Fortunately, it was reported that there were no casualties. Authorities have closed the road here and are monitoring the situation.

In central and southern Italy, the death rate increased by 7% last month compared to the previous year due to the record-breaking heat wave.
