A Village in Italy Just Got 8 Feet of Snow in 1 Day

Mar 11, 2015

The front doors in the village of Capracotta, Italy, are snow-where to be found.

In just 18 hours on Thursday, the village received 100.8 inches (8' 4") of snow,CNN reports, likely setting the all-time mark for most snow in 24 hours (though it's not official yet).

That's more snow than Boston got in January and February combined, but just short of the 107.9 inches that have inundated Beantown so far this year.

Capracotta is a town of 1,000 residents sitting at an altitude of 4,662 feet. The city is in the mountains a three-hour drive east of Rome and roughly halfway down the Italian Peninsula, and vulnerable to weather coming from the northeast.

The World Meteorological Organization will confirm whether the snowfall at Capracotte exceeded the 24-hour record of 75.8 inches in Silver Lake, Colorado, in 1921.
