Four earthquakes hit Italy in one day – Chronicle

An earthquake – the fourth of the day – was followed by another, of lesser intensity, in Modena, shortly before 5.50pm in Emilia.and in the Apennine region bordering the province of Lucca. The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (Ingv) found the main shock to have a magnitude of 3.8 and a second between 2.9 and 3.4 with its epicenter at Pievebelago (Modena). This shock was felt in the Emilian Apennines, but also in Tuscany. The president of the region, Eugenio Gianni, stated that “following the checks carried out by the regional hall together with the fire brigade and the provincial halls, there was no damage following the earthquake between Modena and Lucca”.

The 3.9-magnitude earthquake in the Marche region, the 4.1-magnitude earthquake in Liguria, and the 3.6-magnitude earthquake that struck Sicily are unrelated. In the Etna region: “There is no relationship, the distance between the earthquakes is hundreds of kilometers, so there is a connection”, seismologist Carlo Meletti, from the Pisa division of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (Ingv).

Of the three earthquakes, the deepest (24 kilometers) occurred in the Marche region of Folignano in the province of Ascoli Piceno.: “It is deeper than the usual earthquakes of the Apennines”, added the expert. “It’s located on the coast of the Marche, in an external belt with its own seismicity,” he added, with mechanisms different from those seen in regular earthquakes in the Apennines. The earthquake in Liguria has some peculiarities, it is very non-seismic and historically no strong earthquakes have been recorded. Also in this case the mechanism is different from the Apennines earthquakes and is linked to compression between the Apennines in the east and the Alps in the west. As for the earthquake in Sicily, although it occurred in the Etna region, it was produced by a mechanism independent of the volcano and linked to faults in the area known to seismologists.
