You guys are slow. Italy just had one. It's just over 6. So, it may have cause some real damage, injury, or worse. They have super old buildings. So.
I haven't even check more than the fact I saw it on the Yellowstone webicorders so is big.
Near Nordica, Italy.
Right in the middle of Italy. I was think about Italians today. I was watching a documentary of some crazy horse race in a town that has them beating
each other with sticks. Plus, I was thinking about calling an Italian friend, (not in Italy, but they lots) near the coast. So, I'm not worried about

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake has struck central Italy, south of the city of Perugia, the US Geological Survey says, with the shock also felt in Rome.

In Rome, some buildings shook for 20 seconds, according to La Repubblica newspaper.

I may have been to quick to judge. One town has major damage.
"'It's a tragedy'
The mayor of Amatrice, Sergio Pirozzi, has called the quake a "tragedy". Speaking to Radio Rai, he said:
"I'm trying to contact the services. The town doesn't exist anymore. The ancient doors have come down. We need help from the civic protection."
"There is no light, it's all gone off. It's all rubble, it's a tragedy."
People are under rubble...
“There are people under the rubble… There’s been a landslide and a bridge might collapse.”
