The earthquake swarm does not stop: about 22,000 people displaced

A continuous earthquake swarm is still striking the areas already devastated by the earthquakes of 26 and 30 October. In fact, while between Marche, Umbria and Lazio there are new collapses and people are exhausted from fear and cold, the INGV (National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology) keeps reporting shocks.
Luckily, there are no victims, but the situation is still dramatic: according to the Italian Civil Protection, there are about 22,000 people displaced, of which almost 15,400 people assisted under their municipality.
Meanwhile, researchers of the CNR and INGV have detected the deformation of the ground caused by the last earthquake through radar images of the sensors of the Sentinel-1 constellation of the European Copernicus Program. The preliminary results show a deformation which extends to an area of approximately 130 km² and whose maximum displacement is of at least 70 cm, localized near the area of Castelluccio, a fraction of the town of Norcia (PG) in Umbria.
