MOSCOW, June 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry has issued a travel alert for tourists visiting northern Italy due to the possibility of new quakes.
A series of tremors up to 5.9 points on the Richter scale has happened in Italy’s Emilia Romagna since May 20. The latest tremor of 4.2 points occurred at 9:30 p.m. on May 31.
Italian authorities do not plan to take additional precautions, the Russian embassy said. “Foreign tourists are free to visit the quake-stricken areas, but tourists are not recommended visiting districts with ruined or semi-ruined buildings or structures, which may come down,” the ministry said.
Generally, the tourist infrastructure of Emilia Romagna is functioning normally.
“Italian authorities have warned that insignificant tremors might occur within the next two weeks, leading to the destruction of dilapidated buildings,” it said.
“Tourists visiting in Italy should stay alert and careful and strictly abide by instructions of their guides and tour operators,” the ministry said.
