Heavy rainfall and flooding has left at least three people dead in central Italy.

Authorities say three power utility workers died when their car fell off a collapsed bridge in Tuscany late Monday.

Thousands of people lost power as towns were cut off by rising waters that washed out roads, flooded homes and disrupted train service to and from the region.

The floods have also affected parts of northern Italy, including the tourist city of Venice, which saw some of the worst flooding on record.

Water levels in the city are now receding.
