75% of Venice under water after unusually high tide strikes famed city (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Venice’s iconic piazzas are covered in water, not pigeons, as three-quarters of the city is submerged following a storm that brought strong winds, rose water levels, and toppled trees. Water levels rose more than five feet (156cm / 61.4 inches), with photos showing locals and tourists wading their way through it.
