Earthquake report world-wide for Tuesday, 25 Jun 2019
Two years ago we visited the central part of Italy. At the first stop we chose the area of Pescara, the same region where an earthquake occurred tonight. On the route of our travels there was, inter alia, the capital of Abruzzo, L’Aquila.
In April 2009, L’Aquila experienced a powerful and tragic earthquake. Over 300 people died in the city itself, 1,500 were injured, and over 10,000 buildings collapsed. We arrived there on the fifth anniversary of the upheavals, on the morning of Easter Sunday 2014.
I must admit that of all the memories of several trips to Italy, L’Aquila made the biggest impression on me. The entire old town is dead. People had to leave their homes because most were in danger of collapsing. They are now silent and empty.
They are all fastened with buckles and covered with scaffolding and they wait for funds to be renewed. All streets are in scaffolding, and on some sites you can still see holiday ads for Easter 2009. On the main street, on the walls of the buildings, the shocking photos of Roberto Grillo, suspended just after the quake, were suspended.
The view is overwhelming, especially when I imagine that something like this could happen to my city, for example our Wrocław Passage Potter or Prison or Igiel. Today, in the old town of L’Aquila, people appear almost only in the main square, the rest are still emptiness and mourning, so now that I heard about the next quake that hit the region, the memories of L’Aquila came back.
The epicenter of the earthquake was located 8 km south-west of the city of Galaxidi, near the seaside town of Itea, at a depth of 13.7 km.According to Sky News, shocks were felt even in the distant by 130 km west of the epicenter of Athens.
On Saturday morning, the ground also shook in Papua New Guinea. Here, the earthquake had a strength of 6.4 on the Richter scale.For best services you can visit just goto earthquake early warning system.
