Italy faces more earthquakes in near future, scientists warn

by Robin McKie 

Scientists have warned that central Italy faces a serious risk of suffering further devastating earthquakes in the near future. The region – in central Italy north of Rome – has already been struck by three major tremors over the past few weeks. Seismologists believe a further earthquake could soon strike the region. “Given what we have discovered about these three related earthquakes, there is a real chance that there is going to be another significant quake in the region in the very near future,” said Richard Walters, a lecturer in earth science at Durham University. “That is well within the bounds of possibility.”
