Messina – Catastrofe Annunciata / Messina Mudslide Disaster – Vergogna!! Shame!!

Messina - Catastrofe Annunciata / Messina Mudslide Disaster - Vergogna!! Shame!!
21 dead, 40 missing, 80 injured, and more than 400 homeless. A state of emergency has been declared in Messina in Sicily following Thursday night’s biblical downpour, in which 25 centimetres of rain fell in just three hours.

People are furious. Just one storm caused such devastation, but they are not blaming the skies. Many are convinced this was a man-made disaster.

“There is a situation of widespread hydro-geological instability and that’s mainly because of unauthorised buildings in the Messina area, and many others in Italy. A serious plan is needed, rather than massive prestige projects, to invest in the safety of these zones, or other disasters will happen,” said President Napolitano, who toured the area. "

"Rather than massive prestige projects" means the Messina Bridge project. But, while the government has no money for serious plans of protection of the environment, Mr. Matteoli , minister of the Infrastructures, says "In january we will start building the bridge" !!!

The environmentalist group Legambiente said the island was "paying a very high price for destroying the land with huge, unregulated blocks of cement."

The city of Messina would be the site of one end of a controversial 10-billion euro ($14.5 billion) bridge linking mainland Italy to the Mediterranean island which the government says will be completed by 2016.

"We need a serious investment plan to increase safety — rather than grandiose public works — in this part of the country, or else tragedies like this one will happen again," said again President Giorgio Napolitano.
