Meloni to chair meeting on Campi Flegrei quakes

Meloni to chair meeting on Campi Flegrei quakes

Encounter 'to plan possible new interventions' says Meloni

ROME, 21 May 2024, 14:28

ANSA English Desk



Premier Giorgia Meloni on Wednesday will chair an inter-ministerial meeting on the flurry of seismic activity that started late on Monday in the area of the Campi Flegrei volcanic caldera near Naples, Civil Protection Minister Nello Musumeci said on Tuesday.
    The activity has featured some 160 quakes since Monday evening, including a 4.4 magnitude one that was the strongest to hit the area over 40 years, sparking alarm among local residents, many of whom spent the night outdoors.
    Schools were closed on Tuesday in Pozzuoli and other towns in the area as a precautionary measure and 39 families have been evacuated from their homes, while inmates at the local women's prison are set to be temporarily moved to other jails in Campania.
    The Campi Flegrei area, also known the Phlegrean Fields in English, is currently affected by bradyseism, or ground uplift, and the seismic activity in the volcanic zone has led to fears of harm to people and property.
    Musumeci said Wednesday's meeting would examine "possible further interventions by the government" and "those already being implemented. " "I am in constant contact with Premier Giorgia Meloni, who has been following the situation since last night," he said.
