Comment on "Geomorphic hazards and intense rainfall: the case study of the Recco Stream catchment (Eastern Liguria, Italy)" by Faccini et al. (2012)

L. Marchi

Abstract. Faccini et al. (2012) describe an intense rainstorm that caused a flash flood and triggered landslides in a sector of Eastern Liguria (Italy) on 1 June 2007 and discuss the implications for geomorphic hazard assessment and land use planning. This comment points out some weaknesses in the use of weather radar for the assessment of rainfall and in the documentation of flood response.
