Fortunately, however, no victims were recorded during the disputes between the region and the municipality in the Lombard capital.

“And some say that the tanks are not needed yet. The Milan tank is being tested, but the others, in the Lombardy region, are behind”, Grenelli wrote on his social pages on the dispute with the Lombardy region. “I believe that Granelli should focus on better managing the city, because I believe that many situations like this have never happened, which prove to be completely abandoned – Lombard Governor Attilio Fontana responded – the rolling bins will be ready, the first will arrive by the end of January, the second by March, we respect the time .
Mayor Giuseppe Sala also spoke on this issue: “I want to point out that yesterday evening a yellow warning was issued by the regional civil defense, so, theoretically, don’t worry.
