The alarm goes off also in Italy for the volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands which began on 19 September on the island of La Palma. The cloud of dust and gases containing various potentially dangerous substances, including sulfur dioxide, is crossing the Mediterranean at high altitudes. ‘Special supervised’ are in particular Sardinia and Sicily where the cloud with the greatest concentration will pass, while other regions of the central south will only be touched by the blanket.
Analyzing the maps published by Copernicus, the earth observation program of the European Union that monitors our planet and its environment, it is clear that in the next two days the cloud will fly over Sardinia and also reach Sicily and then move away. “We have been verifying the situation from our 34 stations of the regional environmental monitoring network since the phenomenon began – Alessandro Serci of Arpa Sardegna explains to ANSA – the situation is currently under control, within 3 micrograms per cubic meter of sulfur. It did not rain and there were no relapses. “
Forecasts are also turning to optimism. “The simulations made by the competent offices indicate that the pollutant is stationary at a height of 5 thousand meters – specifies Serci – And there are no weather phenomena that involve the fallout of this pollutant towards our territory. The worst data that had been indicated to us was scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, but fortunately we have not had any overshooting of the limits of air quality “.
