Incredible. Can see an exodus of geologists and seismologists from Italy in the next few weeks. My Y13 IB students are all over this on the Facebook group this evening. They can't believe it either as it was one of their major case studies!

science on trial - bonkers
I wonder if they send them to jail if they are overly-cautious? Could be a lot more earthquake warnings in Italy!!
