Ticino rivers and reservoirs on verge of overflow
Locals in canton Ticino are being warned to stay away from rivers and reservoirs as several days of heavy rain has caused them to swell.
The reservoirs are now close to overflowing and spill ways may have to be opened. While people are being told to stay away, there are no plans for any evacuations.
Forecasters say the worst of the current rainfall should now be over. More sun is expected from tomorrow.
