Emergency crews worked to pump floodwater from buildings.

Heavy rains and strong winds in northern Italy led to a 70-vehicle pile-up and several street flooding in Genoa, Italy, Friday afternoon, forcing some road closures and affecting more than 100 people.

Several vehicles were still stuck along a road in the central San Giuseppe neighborhood, a popular tourist destination in the city that was flooded Friday.

The emergency response team said the flooding at the intersection of Via Santa Maria and Via Comunal made conditions dangerous for rescuers.
