“Half the country is subject to heavy rains, the other half plagued by high temperatures with wind that can trigger fires. Strong thunderstorms will affect Piedmont and Lombardy, especially Comasco. The hydrogeological risk will be high. In the center-south, high temperatures will remain” The head of the Civil Protection said so Fabrizio Curcio speaking at a press conference about the situation of fires in Sicily.
“We recommend – added Curcio – maximum caution for the citizens of the north who live in areas at risk of flooding. In the south, in the hottest areas, we recommend appropriate behavior: fires almost never start by themselves. Whoever sets them on is a criminal and I hope it will. justice takes its course. Sometimes, however, the fires are negligent, triggered by unwanted gestures, perhaps the result of ignorance or sloppiness “.
