F1 paddock evacuated as Emilia Romagna GP hit by severe weather

Formula One took the precaution with the possibility of flooding affecting the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari over a two-day period during which authorities issued a red alert for Tuesday and Wednesday of flooding and landslides in the Emilia Romagna region. F1 is monitoring the situation and remains optimistic that the race will go ahead this weekend as planned. After the weather warning was issued they continued to do so until the race promoter and authorities asked them to leave as a precaution, which was carried out in a calm and orderly fashion. F1 has insisted the river banks have not been breached but it is being monitored, with very high water levels. The expectation is the rain will abate somewhat before this weekend’s race but further heavy rain is forecast for Wednesday, with warnings of between 100 and 150mm.
