A powerful tornado struck near Rome, Italy on Sunday, killing two, and injuring dozens. A 25-year-old man was killed in the city of Ladispoli, a coastal town north of the capital, when a cornice fell from a building and struck him on the head.

The tornado that struck around 6 p.m. local time, also claimed the life of a 74-year-old-man in Cesano, near Lake Bracciano. An Italian news agency reported that the man was crushed by a tree. The power storm caused branches to be blown across roads, and caused some localized street flooding.
