MEDITERRANEAN: many Strong EARTHQUAKES in the last Months – What is happening?
The strong earthquake of magnitude 6.6 which struck Turkey at 6:55 pm yesterday, causing dozens of deaths and thousands of injured is not an isolated case.
In the last few hours, earthquake activity has intensified throughout the Mediterranean area since a complex tectonic framework that sees Africa and Arabia “pushing” north towards Eurasia.
On the same day yesterday, Friday 24 January, at 08:24, a strong 5.0r earthquake occurred on the coast of eastern Algeria in the area of El Aouana.
Meanwhile, in Italy, two seismic swarms are affecting Calabria, in Sila, and the Romagna coast, in Ravenna. Other shocks in recent days have affected the Gargano, the Tuscan / Emilian Apennines and the Cuneo area, in Piedmont.
