Town Ignored warning of Earthquake

Posted by Lindy on April 7, 2009


It has always been difficult to tell when an earthquake will hit.

But there had been earth tremors since mid-January in and around L’Aquila in Central Italy.

Giampaulo Giuliani worked at a physicist .  He claimed to have detected radon gas emissions which could only be released under intense pressure. However, the local mayor charged him with scaremongering which meant that he could no longer speak out about his fears of an earthquake.

But on Sunday, Giampaulo be came even more worried when his readings indicated immanent disaster. But he could do nothing with the information because of the injunction on him.

Since the last post the death toll has risen to 179.
