6.2 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Italy. Over 30 Dead.
Devastating 6.2 magnitude earthquakes hit Italy this Wednesday around 3AM. 39 deaths have been confirmed, but reports show that this number likely will rise as rescuers clear more rubble.
Several towns were affected. The most damage was in Amatrice and Accumoli near Rieti, about 80 miles northeast of Rome.
“Half of the town doesn’t exist anymore,” Perozzi told RAI-TV. “People are stuck underneath the rubble. Houses are no longer there.”
We are sending our prayers to those affected in the earthquakes, along with their friends and family.
