Bad weather emergency, Curcio in Catania: “The event is not over yet, we expect other difficult moments”

“The event isn’t over yet. Attention must be kept high, these are difficult moments ». These are the first words of the Head of the National Civil Protection Department, Fabrizio Curcio, who arrived this morning in Catania to chair a meeting in the Prefecture for the bad weather emergency. «We are ready, what is possible is being done, let’s see what will happen, what can be planned is being planned. The damages? There are important impacts but at this moment I would not dare to quantify them ».

Curcio spoke in a break in the meeting, but the summit is still underway in view of the quantification of the damage, but above all in view of the new wave of bad weather announced for the weekend with a new cyclonic vortex approaching eastern Sicily.

«The values ​​speak very clearly – said Curcio -: impressive millimeters of rain fell. We think that those 600 millimeters that have been recorded in some cases are very evident compared to the impact that has been on the territory. Intense and very sudden events in a territory that obviously has some critical issues ».

«We must give to the citizens – continued Curcio – this communication: the event is not over. There is now a moment that seems to be attenuating and it is, but our weather models tell us the event will return. If we want to make a useful communication we must say not only what could be done in our country, but tell the citizens to keep their attention high and to follow the indications that come from the authorities – mayors, prefectures and the Region – because they are waiting for us. hours that can be complicated ».

«We need to think about the ecological transition. It is a topic that we must ask ourselves and tackle immediately, as it is on the agenda of the international agendas »said Curcio again at the end of the meeting in the Prefecture. «I follow the debate on climate change – he added – and obviously we are among those who think that things must be done and the Government itself is doing things. We have a ministry called the ecological transition. There is certainly a medium and long-term theme. As a civil protection system, as well as contributing in the medium and long term, we have the theme of the ‘now “”. (
