The earth is still shaking in Ceneselli, in the province of Rovigo. A striking copy of Wednesday’s was recorded by the INGV, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, at 5:29 p.m., again with a magnitude of 4.2° on the Richter scale. The epicenter occurred in Ceneselli, a municipality of 1,559 inhabitants, located west of the capital. The earthquake originated at a depth of 11 kilometers.
The INGV classifies this area as medium dangerous. The most important earthquake in the recent past was that of May-June 2012 in Emilia Romagna, which caused 26 victims and very significant damage. On July 17, 2011, another earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred, very close to today’s earthquake.
What do we know about the recent earthquake?
At the origin of these two events there is “a compression mechanism”, the president of the INGV explained on Wednesday. Carlo Doglioni. The shock was generated by the pressure of the northern edge of the Apennines buried beneath the Po Valley. “It is a very well-known area from a seismic point of view because it is located along the compression front of the Apennine chain,” adds Doglioni.
The other municipalities closest to the epicenter are Calto 3 kilometers away, Felonica (Mantua) 4 kilometers away and Salara 5 kilometers away.
Zaia: “Reply, evolution cannot be predicted”
“We spoke with Fabrizio Curcio, director of National Civil Protection, and tells us that the one registered is surely an earthquake that follows a previous one a few days later. This area of Veneto is located in a seismic zone, where earthquakes are frequent and no one can predict the evolution of events.” The president of Veneto told ANSA, Luca Zaiaabout the new earthquake recorded today in the Rovigo area.
“It is important to remember – continues Zaia – that we are in an area where earthquakes can be recorded frequently, of different intensities, and it is good to keep our attention high.
We ask the population to stay informed, through the media, about the possible indications of the experts, although at the moment there are no particular requests from the Civil Protection authorities.” “The Region – he concludes – is available to experts, who are monitoring the situation. The institutions of Veneto, in particular the “counselor Gianpaolo Bottacin, will remain in contact with the structures of the national Civil Protection”
