Movements in the interior magma conduits within a 'charge' of energy Etna: they are the cause of about 40 shocks recorded last night in Catania, including 6 with magnitudes greater than 2.0. The strongest was magnitude 3.2, according to the analysis of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Catania. The earthquakes that have caused damage to property or persons, had hypocenters between 5 and 6.2 km depth 'and epicenters in the vicinity' of the towns of Taormina, Milo, Sant'Alfio, Santa Venerina Zafferanea Etnea countries where the events have been warned. According to the Ingv, earthquakes are linked to a new phase of the activity 'Etna has changed since last May' course ', slowing down over time, the eruptions lightning. Probably, the experts suggest, the most active volcano 'highest in Europe is set for a new phase of activity', different from previous ones.
Already in the night we had anticipated such an event, taking inspiration from the fact that Etna erupts from no more than two months, but in reality its active has never stopped as he explained a few days ago the director of the Catania section of 'Ingv, Domenico Patanè, in this exclusive interview in which, referring to the volcano, told us that "it is still in operation, we will have new or paroxysms-strombolian explosive eruption."
