Near the Italian city of Naples is a volcano, which has recently started to show signs of activity. This is the first change in the last five hundred years.
According to the monitoring of the scientists from Italy and France, in the northwest of Naples periodically some hydrothermal and seismic activity is observed.
For more than four years this region has “yellow” level of danger. The representatives of the local authorities asked scientists to provide new information about the behavior of the volcano.
The experts argue that the magma really rises to the surface. This can cause the emission of gasses and volcanic rocks.
The scientists find it difficult to make any forecasts about the eruption. They can not tell if it is actually, and when this may happen.
