The project's mission is to create an effective technology for monitoring and early warning of people about the danger of a landslide, reducing thereby the risk to potential victims and other negative consequences of landslides affecting cities and high-risk industrial facilities (main highways and railways, dams, fuel storages and warehouses for toxic substances, petrochemical plants, etc.).


Prof. Elchin Khalilov is President of the Global Network for the Forecasting of Earthquakes GNFE (UK) and Chairman of GEOCHANGE International Committee (Germany), gave the forecast of seismic activity of the world till 2026 on behalf of the above-mentioned organizations.

4 dead in Italy flooding

At least four people were killed when torrential rains caused rivers to burst their banks in Italy’s province of Tuscany, news reports said on Wednesday.

Two days of heavy rains also rode roughshod over the provinces of Lazio, Liguria and Umbria, causing power cuts and transport disruptions there.

In another development, floods in Venice have left 70 percent of the historic port city under water.

At least 3 die in floods in Italy

According to preliminary information, 3 people have died in central Italy as a result of flooding caused by heavy rains.

According to local authorities, two men and one woman were killed when their car fell off a collapsed bridge into a river.

In the regions of Umbria and Tuscany rivers burst their banks due to several days of unending rains.

Italy hit by rains

Pouring rains that occurred in Italy last weekend caused landslides in several cities in the northern and central regions of the country.

In some provinces the mud-stream was 1.5 metres deep. The rain destroyed several bridges, caused problems with electricity supply and locked dozens of people inside their own cars.

The elements also caused serious damage to agriculture, The Corriere della Sera reports.

70% percent of Venice flooded

A combination of heavy rains and strong winds has led to a sharp rise in the water level in the Italian city of Venice.

As a result of flooding, or "high water", as the locals call it, about 70 percent of the city is flooded.

The city authorities have announced a state of emergency and have closed schools, other public institutions and travel routes.

The city administration is urging citizens not to leave their homes and to remain on the upper floors.

In addition to Venice, other cities on the west coast of northern Italy have been hit by the unusual weather.

In the region of Tuscany emergency services have already evacuated 200 people from dangerous areas.
