Nine members of one family died in Casteldaccia, near Palermo, as a rain-swollen river flooded a home. The victims were from two families who had gathered in the country villa for the weekend.

Torrential rain triggering landslides and flood waters led to the death of 10 people in the region around Palermo, a spokesman for the Sicilian capital's Prefecture said on Sunday. "There was a river of water, I was knocked down and grabbed hold of a tree, ' Giuseppe Giordano told reporters between sobs". The survivor used his cellphone to call for help but it was too late for the others, including a one-year-old baby and a three-year-old child. "My son Federico, carrying one of the children said "Dad, I will hold her up" and all of a sudden I saw all the windows go dark, and I took the keys of the vehicle to try to get out but then the window exploded, the wall fell in and the lights went out".

The Agi news agency reported that a family of nine had been found dead in their house in Casteldaccia.

"It has never presented a threat to Casteldaccia, and it wasn't a very rainy day, anyway", Di Giacinto added.

Rescuers worked Sunday to retrieve the bodes in the home.

Other storms had battered northern Italy earlier in the week, killing at least 15 people, uprooting millions of trees near Alpine valleys and leaving several Italian villages without electricity or road access for days.

Two other people, a man and a woman, died after their vehicle was caught in the floods in the region of Agrigente, a little further south on the island.

Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said a series of underwater barriers that are being built in the lagoon would have prevented the flooding. In the same province, 14 people were rescued from a hotel in the town of Montevago, which was threatened by floodwaters from the Belice River.

According to Ansa news agency, the missing would be a 40-year-old doctor travelling on his auto to reach the hospital in Corleone to start his shift. "ANSA quoted the husband, Andrea Cardenale, as saying he drove away as 'water was up to the hood of the car".
