Venice, Italy - Oct 27 2011: People waiting for flooding to clear in St Marks Square, Venice. St Marks Square is not far above sea level and during high water from storm surges or heavy rain it often floods. Sea water from the lagoon surges up into the Square from drains that normally take rainwater in the Square to the Grande Canal.
