I had the bad luck to follow L'Aquila Earthquake, all reports, media coverage, and so on: no one reported anything strange (and a specific
investigation was made, since a study on seismic precursors is being made in Italy): so, where has been this video taken, when and by whom may I
HAARP? Nope, EARTHQUAKE; just study italians faults and you will find out that the truth is that: there are some FAULTS below apennino that are
crossing their ways: every now and then, they "clash".
This, in particular, is a seismic swarm, lasting since January 2008
Here's the list of the big shock and the aftershocks
The events of April, 7th affected mainly the area around the L'Aquila and its south-eastern surroundings (Onna, Fossa, Ocre), whereas those of April,
9th were localized mainly in the north of L'Aquila, towards Barete, Pizzoli, Campotosto.
The distribution of replies in the map shows very well the area affected by seismic sequence, which extends about 25 km in NorthWest-Southeast
direction, parallel to the Apennine chain. The strongest aftershock, detected at 19:47 on April, 7th, has affected the southern sector of the area,
close to San Martino d'Ocre, Fossa, San Felice d'Ocre, where were detected aftershocks smaller than the ones of April, 7th. The event of April 9th
(Ml = 5.1) is located further north along a more limited extent.
The fault responsible of the main shock is approximately 15 Km. long and shows an immersion from North East towards South West. L'Aquila results to
be located exactly above the fault.
Stars are the main shocks, the red lines are the faults:
...and this is the fault (in surface) which caused the main shock: it was photographed in
Onna, a small town which over 250 inhabitants suffered 40 deaths
The map of the seismic events occurred during the last 90 days:
This is the area that was hit
...and this is the map of seismic hazard in Italy: the dark red areas are the most dangerous, the arrow indicates where the 5.8 richter earthquake
Just in case you aren't aware of it, 300+ people lost their lives and 25.000 won't have an house for the next two years. So, to exploit such a
tragic event in order to promote a crappy video whatsoever is lame to ay the least, not talking about the OP, but about the guy of youtube.
