Milan Earthquake Magnitude 3.9 Is The Most Intense In Several Centuries.
On Thursday, the northern Italian city of Milan recorded an earthquake with a rare magnitude in that region, the most intense in several centuries.
A spokeswoman for the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Lucia Lodzi, said that experts detected an earthquake measuring 3.9 on the Richter scale, and its focus was only 6 kilometers west of Milan, with a depth of 56 kilometers.
Residents felt earthquakes in various neighborhoods of the city and its suburbs, and relief agencies received hundreds of phone calls from anxious residents, but the earthquake did not result in any damage or injuries, and only caused slow traffic and delayed some trains.
Lodzi added that the earthquakes that were recorded on Thursday are the strongest in several centuries, as a stronger earthquake was recorded in November 1396, as the focus of the earthquake was in the neighboring city of Montza and reached a magnitude of about 5 on the Richter scale. RIa.ru
