TRENTO, Italy, May 17 (UPI) -- Heavy rains have caused flooding in northern Italy that has killed at least one person and caused significant disruption and damage, officials said.
A man near Verona drowned in an underground garage, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Friday.
The flooding triggered a landslide that blocked a railway near the city of Trento and 80 people were evacuated from two buildings in Lombardy after the foundations were weakened by the flood. A woman was rescued from her car after it was buried in a mudslide near Verona.
The governor of the Veneto region said he would request over a half billion euros ($641 million) in government assistance.
The rains are expected to last five more days, ANSA said.
