Sicily (Calabria) rocked by 5 Earthquakes today 20/01/2019 – What is happening?
Only Today in Calabria (Sicily) five earthquakes occurred, all with an epicenter in Albi in the Catanzaro area and one in Savelli in the Crotone area.
The earthquake shocks that have affected Calabria and in particular the province of Catanzaro continue in recent days. Only today five have already occurred, all with an epicenter in Albi in the Catanzaro area and one in Savelli in the Crotone area, between 3:24 a.m. last night at 12:36 p.m
Low magnitudes, the highest was 2.9 and occurred at 06:06:39, with geographic coordinates (lat, long) 39.08, 16.61 at a depth of 6 km.
A few days ago the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology had recorded an earthquake that occurred in the same area, with an epicenter in Albi (CZ), and which in some areas had a magnitude that reached the 5th-6th grade on the Mercalli scale, which measures the effects of an earthquake on people or things.
“The solution of the fault plan (FPS) is extensional oriented SW-NE and fits perfectly within the framework of the major structures of Calabria – geologist Antonio Moretti explained – , who have been responsible for large earthquakes in the past.
L in Calabria is always dangerous, and by dint of crack sooner or later burst. I am very sorry for my Calabrian friends, but they must always be prepared for a major seismic crisis”, the expert had warned.
