"Sicily 1968" Palermo Warnings Or Dangers Tip by CliffClaven
Palermo Warnings and Dangers: 14 reviews and 8 photos
Having lived in Japan, old Cliffie has experienced quite a few earth tremors. But he will never forget the first earthquake he felt, at 11 o'clock one Thursday morning, as he taught a class of teenage Sicilian girls. As he felt the floor tremble, he turned to look out of the fifth-floor window at the building across the street, which was gently swaying from side to side, with bits of the façade slowly peeling off and falling into the street. Sicily lies in the Mediterranean earthquake belt: its worst earthquake in the last century was in 1908, when more than 70000 people died in Messina.
