Another strong earthquake in central Italy

Jump to last reply

We've had two strong earthquakes this evening, the first at 7:15 PM, 5.2 on the Richter scale, and the second at 9:20, 6.2 on the Richter scale, These had their epicenter in Le Marche, in the province of Macerata, near the town of Visso, north of the zone that was hit by the earthquake in August. We felt both of them at our home in the province of Ancona, but the second one was much stronger and lasted longer. We were in southern Le Marche in August, much closer to the affected zone, and we felt that much more.

It's said that both quakes were felt in Rome and the second was even felt in Naples.

The zone where it happened is very sparsely populated, and it was dark. Phone service is pretty much knocked out, and cell reception is never great in that area. So far there are no reports of deaths, but no one has yet been able to report from the isolated areas near the epicenter,
