Earthquake, the seismologist: “4 shocks in one day but no correlation between them”


“It is a coincidence that four earthquakes were recorded in a single day in Italy, therefore a correlation between them cannot be established: there are distances of hundreds of kilometers from each other. They are single events. our country records many earthquakes and one-off it can happen that seismic events with a magnitude of around 3.8 – 4.1 can occur in different areas of our territory within 24 hours “. So to Adnkronos Andrea Billi, seismologist of the Institute of Environmental Geology and Geoengineering (Igag-Cnr) in the aftermath of the tremors recorded a few hours later in Sicily, Marche, Liguria and Emilia Romagna. “The 4.1 magnitude quake in the Genoese hinterland was partially unexpected, but it is also true that the Apennine area between Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna and Liguria – explains the expert – is very active seismically, and we are close there. So, for me , not a big surprise. And then it is not certain that the less seismic areas cannot register strong tremors. Notwithstanding that no predictions can be made, surely in these hours there will be small aftershocks following the earthquakes recorded yesterday – he adds Billi – And if they are a prelude to something stronger – and we hope not – it is not possible to anticipate it “. “Very rarely there have been cause and effect circumstances between very rainy periods and small seismic swarms, but in general, establishing relationships between earthquakes and climate is very risky. And I would rule it out. These are seismic cycles related to plate tectonics,” concludes Billi. .
