A ML =5.8 earthquake rocked the L'Aquila area on April 6, 2009. Several aftershocks characterized by 5<ML<4 followed the main seismic event. The depth of mainshock was about 9 km and the same region has been hit by strong earthquakes during the past centuries. Possible phenomena related to underground fluid dynamics due to the seismic sequence were reported. Sensors capable of monitoring water level variations and temperatures in selected spring sources of Central Italy were placed in the studied area and their data processed. Fluid sensors located at different distances from the epicentral area were differently affected by the seismic sequence. Collected data during the seismic swarm are discussed and compared to contemporary data recorded by satellite-based techniques.
