Hi to all.
I'm posting  some of the major's events of Southern Italy's quake.
The final number of iniured is 32 victims  (29 childrens in San Giulianos'
We have registered 282 events,  from foreshock until now, with our station
(Macchia Valfortore) sites 10km from epicenter.
The quake was origined by an unknown strike-slip fault in a relatively
a-seismic zone.
The sequence has given a foreshock of  ML 3.4,  a first mainshock of  ML 5.6
eight hours later,  a moderate aftershock with max ML 3.7 and, today, the
second mainshock of. ML 5.5. Then 5.0 ,  4.8 and three events of ML 4.2
A complex seismotectonic zone, with many major faults, quiting from 200
years, encircles the epicenter zone.
