The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology recorded this morning at ore 3.52, a earthquake measuring 4.3 on the Richter scale with epicenter in the sea Southern Tyrrhenian Sea, at a depth of 5 km, about 25 km north-east of the island of Alicudi.
The quake was distinctly felt by the local population, but since there are no large inhabited centers in the area of ​​20 km from the epicenter, so far no damage to people or things has been reported. So far, no replies have been recorded.
But the earthquake a few hours ago is not the only event that has affected the Aeolian Islands in recent days. In fact, the Stromboli continues to feed an intense lava overflow that rolls along its slope from the so-called Sciara del Fuoco reaching the sea. Furthermore, the island of Vulcano has been partially evacuated in recent days due to the release of high-temperature gas.
