Violent thunderstorm hits Italy after major heat wave, leaves 3 dead

Three people have lost their lives as violent storms hit northern Italy on Sunday, August 6, 2017, following a major heatwave across southern Europe which claimed at least 2 lives. Strong winds, very large hail and a huge number of lightning strikes were all part of this brief yet deadly severe weather event.
According to media reports, a 41-year-old Belgian man was among the dead after a tree fell on his tent at a summer camp in the Tramontina valley in the country's northeast. Another man was killed after a tree was uprooted by powerful winds and fell on a festival at Marzia in the Dolomites. The third casualty was a hiker who was fatally struck by lightning on a path up a mountain in the same area.
