Super Volcano rumblings at Campi Flegrei

Italys-Super-Volcano Life on the edge of Italy's 'super volcano'

Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Important Takeaways:

  • Swarm of quakes besets Italian town as super volcano rumbles
  • Over the past weeks the government has been planning for a possible mass evacuation of tens of thousands of people who live around the vast volcanic area known as the Campi Flegrei, or Phlegraean Fields, from the ancient Greek word for burning.
  • Sulphurous fumes escape from the surface, giving the area a surreal look and making it a magnet for tourists
  • Residents have become used to the smell, the fumes and the trembling. There were more than a thousand quakes in September, most of them minor.
  • But a 4.2 magnitude earthquake on Sept. 27, the strongest jolt in more than 40 years to rattle the volcanic field, sparked fears that what scientists call a “seismic crisis” may be underway for the first time since the early 1980s
  • “Even those small ones (quakes) make us afraid,” she said. “We are worried because (we are supposed to) run away. But where do we go? Where? This is the situation. We’re on edge.”
