Still reeling from the region’s strongest earthquake in 40 years that occurred on Sept. 27, a 4.0 magnitude quake struck south of Naples on Oct. 3. Italy’s fire brigade said there was slight damage to buildings, but no people were injured. The 4.2 magnitude earthquake was felt as far away as Rome.

Increased seismic activity like what is currently happening in southern Italy can be a sign of a future volcanic acitivity, which is currently the worry of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology. While an eurption of the Campi Flegrei caldera wouldn’t affect us directly, it’s a dire and worrying situation for the almost 800,000 people that live in the risk zone of the volcano.

Dylan Estes, Staff Writer
Hi! I’m Dylan Estes and this is my first year in SPUB. I took Journalism last year, but that’s my only prior experience. I’m interested in all aspects of SPUB, but my main interests are with photography and interviewing. I’m excited for the chance to bring a new perspective to the staff, but I’m also excited to be a part of the SPUB family. Journalism matters because it brings people together and brings attention to issues that otherwise may go unnoticed or not talked about.
