Milazzo, 10 October 2015. On Saturday 10 October, Bastione, a small village under the jurisdiction of Milazzo in the province of Messina, was hit by severe weather conditions. Heavy rains flooded the streets with muddy waters causing widespread damage. The Delegation of Sicily of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St George was quick to spring into action by sending out a volunteer team, headed by the Knight Giuseppe Matranga. After dropping off 200 Kg of food supplies at the local Parish of Santa Marina, the volunteers carried out relief operations, helping with the city’s clean-up efforts alongside distressed and fearful villagers, working hard to remove mud from the streets and trying to recover personal belongings and furniture along with other relief squads from the Italian Civil Defence.
