Terremoto in Italia, 2016 Un riepilogo d’impatto

Il 24 agosto 2016, un terremoto di magnitudo 6,2 ha colpito gli Appennini nel centro Italia devastando le cittadine di Amatrice, Accumoli e Pescara del Tronto. Il 26 ottobre, due scosse di assestamento di magnitudo 5,5 e 6,1 hanno colpito Visso, a nord di Amatrice. Il 30 ottobre, una scossa di magnitudo 6,6 ha colpito Norcia, un comune fra Amatrice e Visso. Quest’ultimo è stato il terremoto di maggiore intensità a colpire l’Italia dal 1980 ed il tremore è stato avvertito in quasi tutto il Paese. Nel complesso, ci sono state 299 vittime. Questa è stata l’ultima di una serie di terremoti disastrosi verificatisi in Italia negli ultimi anni. Il Paese è particolarmente soggetto al rischio sismico in quanto e situato in una zona in cui le placche continentali entrano in collisione ed il patrimonio edilizio è vulnerabile.
