Genoa's gas supply cut off by landslide (ANSA) - Genoa, March 21 - Public Prosecutor Alberto Landolfi opened an investigation Friday into a landslide that cut off Genoa's gas supply.

Residents of Genoa and 15 surrounding communities were ordered to stop using gas on Thursday after a landslide broke a gas pipeline in Serra Ricco.

Landolfi's probe aims to find responsibility for the disaster. Residents were still without gas on Friday as technicians from gas service provider Snam worked to repair the pipeline.
