Results of a strong storm

What are the signs left by a flood? How does it change the natural and artificial environment later? The work wants to show details and panoramics of clear signs left by extremely strong winds, mostly in mountain areas. In some areas of Bellunese in Italy, these winds reached the speed of 200 km/h, destroying about 41000 hectares of forest, about 14 millions of trees, so 8,5 millions of cubic meters of wood (all this among the regions of Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, and Trentino Alto Adige). Several experts say that this lack of trees will cause hydrogeological instability and ecological/environmental imbalances. In addition to the wind, rain caused the flooding of the rivers Brenta and Piave, as well as of many mountain creeks, which were responsible for the landslide of large amounts of debris. The surveys report that between the 27th and 28th of October about 900 mm of rain have fallen.
This event has been considered more violent than the similar one of 1966, that occurred in the same areas.
This storm caused the death of 8 people.
Even if natural disasters like these may happen at any time, this one is the umpteenth case among many others that occurred in the world during 2018. So, I must ask a rather obvious question: could the hand of human beings be the cause of increasing events like these? Experts agree about this.
These photos were taken about 10 days later, mostly in the areas of the municipality of Rocca Pietore, Italy.
