Unexplained Fires of Canneto Di Caronia
Canneto Di Caronia, a small village on Italian island of Sicily received a lot of media attention some time ago. In January 2004 about 180 household appliances caught fire without any apparent cause. Italian government launched an investigation using joined efforts of Italian police, air force and one NASA scientist.
They monitored an array of underwater sensors because tectonics were among primary suspects and the investigation was extended to over 300 other incidents that have occurred along the Tyrrhenian Sea axis. Still, two years and two million dollars later – there are no certain conclusions. Their report stated that the events were “caused by high-power electromagnetic emissions which were not man made and reached a power of between 12 and 15 gigawatts” and that “burnt imprints which have not been explained were found in a field.”
To put these numbers into perspective – entire Hoover Dam with all its generators has peak power of 2 gigawatts. World’s largest nuclear reactor reaches a maximum of 3 gigawatts. Entire nation of New Zealand, with all its industry, cities and households uses 6.5 gigawatts. This means that whatever was at work in Canneto caused energy surges twice the output of all powerplants of New Zealand put together or 4 – 5 times the power of world’s largest nuclear generator. As Arsenio Hall wold say “Things that make you go hmm…”
Enthusiasts started think tanks at http://www.datasync.com/~rsf1/canneto.htm
and http://www.datasync.com/~rsf1/cann-tt.htm but at the date of this article – the mystery hasn’t been solved yet. Theories range from static electricity to “aliens testing secret weapons” as speculated by Italian magazine L’Espresso. Predictably, many view this situation in the same way as Father Gabriele Amorth, Vatican’s chief exorcist, who stated: “I’ve seen things like this before. Demons occupy a house and appear in electrical goods…Let’s not forget that Satan and his followers have immense powers.”
Reuter’s interviewed a policeman who did not want to be named. He said:”I’ve seen unplugged electrical cables burst into flames with my own eyes, but I just can’t explain it. I’ve never seen anything like it.” Some scientists witnissed same kind of events which prompted one journalist to comment “If it’s a hoax, it is a very strange one. It costs too much and noone seems to profit from it”.
