Tragic earthquake in Italy

with one comment

Dozens of corpses are being recovered in L’Aquila, Italy, after the tremendous quake of  the last night. The prime minister Silvio Berlusconideclared the State of National Emergency and decide the intervention of the Army and of the Italian Emergency Management Agency.

The Interior Minister, Roberto Maroni, stated that this is “the worst tragedy in thi beginning of 21st century” even if he quake of L’Aquila had been weaker than the Irpinia’s one in 1980. But it was as well devastating: it’s very hard, i Italy, to find buildings made with to survive geological events.

Anyway, what is most tragic is that tha quake had been forseen by Giampaolo Giuliani,  last Tuesday: Abruzzo had been crossed by a lot of micrequakes for a month.  The scholar reported to Mr. Bertolaso that a devastatig quake could happend but his appeal was considered less than a joke.

 Of course, he did non forsee the exact date of the event (his predictions told about one week ago, for the big one) but if a scientist tell me that something is going wrong I’m not sure I will not consider his worries. Mr. Giuliani, now, has to face a trial for false allarm because nobody in Italy gave him 20 seconds of genuine attention. Now, one week later, Italy is mourning his deads.
