    ROME (Sputnik) - Floods in the Nuoro province of Italy's Sardinia island have left at least three people killed and one missing, local media reported on Saturday.

    Heavy rains rocked Sardinia early on Saturday, causing floods and mudslides, with Nuoro's Bitti city bearing the brunt of the storm. La Nuova Sardegna newspaper reported electricity and internet blackouts in the city as rescue teams struggle to tackle the disaster. 

    One local resident was reportedly already found drowned at home and another one was killed in his truck covered under a mudslide, with the body of a 90-year-old woman still missing. Another person has been counted as missing, as well.
