Three die in Italy floods as heavy rain continues

FLORENCE - Three people died after their car fell off a collapsed bridge during heavy rain near the town of Grosseto in central Italy, authorities said on Tuesday, as severe flooding continued in the Tuscany region.
The identity of the victims was still being verified but the car they were in bore the logo of Enel, Italy's biggest electricity company, Civil Protection authority officials said.
It was not immediately clear if their vehicle drove off the bridge or was caught on it when it collapsed.
Tuscany and the neighboring Umbria region have been devastated by severe flooding over the past two days as heavy rains caused rivers to break their banks in several areas.
