Late yesterday evening the Amam he communicated the presence of a fault in the Fiumefreddo pipeline. Problem caused by bad weather (a tree fell on a pylon) and which is causing inconveniences in the distribution of water in the city of Messina (especially in the Northern area). This is the post published on social media:

“Due to adverse weather conditions in the Fiumefreddo area, Enel has communicated that it is repairing a fault. The distribution of water from Fiumefreddo to Messina is currently reduced”. Shortly afterwards, Amam also announced that “an emergency electricity line has been restored by Enel to allow distribution in the city. Users will be able to follow the updates on our website and report any situations of particular hardship or emergency to the dedicated number 090.3687711 or on the social page”.

The situation in Messina city

Tonight there was supply throughout the city except for Tremonti, the Giostra area and via Palermo Bassa which had supply until 8. In the city center they closed the tanks at 9. The Torregrossa “station” was supplied with a replacement line and therefore there will be a second supply, during the afternoon, between Viale Europa and Piazza Castronovo. From tomorrow Monday 12 February water distribution will return to all areas of the city, although with possible time changes. Enel has announced that the repairs to the cables damaged by the bad weather and the restoration of the functionality of the electricity line are expected to be completed on Tuesday.
