George Clooney's villa in Italy nearly washed away in a flood

With his wife and children, the actor himself escaped the muddy stream carrying rocks and tree debris on the second floor.

George Clooney's Italian villa suffered when Lake Como burst its banks. Flooding and mudflows from the mountains nearby contributed to the heavy downpour, which did not cease for 72 hours. The Daily Mail writes about it.

The famous actor was one of the victims of the severe flooding that occurred a day ago on the resort Lake Como in Italy. His Villa Oleandra, located on the very shore, was among those that were nearly swept away by mud torrents that rushed from the mountains after hours of downpours.

According to the actor, the lake burst its banks, mud, logs, stones blocked the front door, and the height of the debris brought by the flow reached the balcony on the second floor.
