Umbria calls for a state of emergency. Tuscany could also submit the request. Today the meeting of the Council of Ministers for interventions in the most affected areas could be postponed in the evening (ANSA)



According to government sources ,

the CDM meeting on drought should deliberate

only the state of emergency in five regions.

The decree - which is being worked on "hard", as the sources themselves point out, could be approved at another time.

The CDM, initially scheduled for 6 pm, could be postponed due to the visit of Prime Minister Mario Draghi to Canazei.

The council of ministers is expected to meet in the evening on his return to Rome.

Umbria has asked for a state of emergency due to the drought.

This was announced by the president of the Region Donatella Tesei who, as explained in a note, had "already raised in recent days, during the


State-Regions Conference, the theme of very urgent government interventions for the drought in Umbria, and in particular for the Trasimeno lake ".

The request was made today to the Government and to the National Civil Protection

.

"Consequently - explained Tesei - I represented to the competent ministries the need to bring our lake basin back into the drafting of the drought decree".

Tesei also announced that he had "given his availability to cover the role of Deputy Commissioner for the Emergency for Umbria, based on the experience of post-earthquake reconstruction, so as to be able to better manage a series of ordinary and extraordinary interventions of which Trasimeno needs ".

Tesei also announced that he had "given his availability to cover the role of Deputy Commissioner for the emergency for Umbria, on the basis of the experience of post-earthquake reconstruction,

so as to be able to better manage a series of ordinary and extraordinary interventions that the Trasimeno needs. "As regards Lake Trasimeno, the technical report attached to the request made by the Region - reads a press release - tends to underline the close water interchange connection between the lake of Chiusi, inserted in the state of crisis, and the Trasimeno, urging that the latter can, despite not having drinking water withdrawals but precisely because of the interconnection, make use of the emergency measure.

 Tuscany could also follow Umbria's example.

"If the drought continues at these levels, if the temperatures reach 39 degrees like today, we too will be forced to declare a state of calamity for part of the territory of Tuscany".

Eugenio Giani, president of the Region, said on the sidelines of the presentation of the 'The' ecosystem today in Florence.

"Today the Observatory meets - he explained - which is the competent body to give us technical indications, and on the basis of these indications we will make our decisions in the council".

According to Giani "Tuscany presents itself in a different situation compared to other regions: this is the reason why so far a state of calamity has not been declared. But it is clear that there are parts of Tuscany that have very problematic conditions that justify it. Others they have a better situation,
