There is a lot of apprehension between Ciociaria and Marsica where a considerable seismic sequence has been activated in the last 36 hours, culminating last night at 6.35 pm with a shock of magnitude 4.4. The earth shook again in the night, precisely at 00:19, still in the same area between Pescosolido and Balsorano, right on the border between Abruzzo and Lazio.
The new shock has reached the magnitude 3.5 on the richter scale while the hypocenter was located at a depth of 11 km. The quake was clearly felt with tremors that lasted a few seconds in a radius of at least 50 km, between the provinces of L'Aquila, Rome, Latina, Frosinone and Isernia. Numerous reports from Sora, Frosinone and Cassino where dozens of people went down the street as a precaution. In the area of the epicenter between Balsorano, Pescosolido and Valpara, several families spent the night away from home. Let us remember that schools will remain closed in many places today (read here).
Following detected two other very weak shocks at 00.32 and 05.38, with magnitudes of 2.0 and 2.1 respectively. Both were felt only very close to the epicenter very slightly.
Here are the inhabited centers within a radius of 20 km:
|Common||ProvIncia||distanza (km)||Popreakfast||Cumulata Popreakfast|
