The City of Genoa has declared two official days of mourning, today and tomorrow August 15-16, as it recovers from the tragic collapse of the Morandi Bridge.
According to the New York Times, at least 39 people have died as a result of the disaster.
The Morandi bridge connected Genoa to the rest of the continent along the A10 motorway corridor.
Not only is that road one of the country’s major arteries but it is also one of Europe’s most important transportation routes, connecting Italy and France.
The collapse of the bridge will continue to impact lives in Genoa, Italy, and Europe for the unforeseeable future.
The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Texas is currently working to gather resources to aid victims and their families.
If you’d like to donate through the chamber, please contact Deputy Director Maurizio Gamberucci by clicking here.
Our hearts and prayers go out this morning to the victims and their families.
