I had a phonecall from a friend yesterday asking me if I knew about the impending earthquake on the 11th of May which is apparently going to flatten Rome. Some of her friends are organizing themselves by sleeping in their cars for a few nights.
I then researched the internet and found out that this guy called Raffaele Bendanti has already predicted the 2 earthquakes in Friuli and Avezzano and now on the Internet there are many stories that he has also predicted the Rome earthquake on May the 11th.
Apparently in the comune of Ciampino someone even stuck leaflets notifying the residents of this, signing the posters as Protezione civile. The real protezione civile is denying they did it.

even had someone from the Bendanti Societa saying that they are in possession of the papers which were partly burned and which only have 2 dates-2011 and 2012 and no other info.
There are lots of people there on the internt who believe it will happen, I can not believe people are so gullable.
