#Venice's St. Mark's Square can be seen completely awash with security forces standing in knee-high levels of water.

The tidal peak is expected to reach a high 160 cm (62.9 inches) on Sunday.

Winter #flooding, dubbed "#AcquaAlta" in Venice, meaning "high water", reached 187cm (73 inches) on Tuesday, the highest level since the record of 194 cm set in 1966.
