Near the location of the deadly August quake. (see ATS for the August Quake info).

The first quake:


a magnitude-5.5 quake struck the same region. The epicenter was about 9 kilometers away, south-southwest of Visso. (It) hit at 7 p.m. (1 p.m. ET) between Perugia and Macerata, according to ANSA.



The second quake -- with a magnitude of 6.1 -- was 3.2 kilometers (2 miles) north of Visso and 58 km (36 miles) from Perugia, the USGS reported.


The depth of both is 10 km. There have been 2 aftershocks, 4.1 and 4.9, also at a depth of 10 KM.


"We don't have any reported victims, but we're in the dark and under a downpour," said Mauro Falcucci, the mayor of the small town of Castelsantangelo sul Nera, according to state news agency ANSA.



CNN's Barbie Nadeau was in Rome when the quakes struck. "Incredible aftershock or earthquake felt in Testaccio in Rome. Wow," she said on Twitter.


Video showed a blocked road. Much of the are is small vilages that can't be reached by night.

Some reports of damage and an injury has come in:

The quakes crumbled churches and buildings, knocking out power and sending panicked residents into the rain-drenched streets.One person was injured in Visso, where the rubble of collapsed buildings tumbled into the streets. But the Civil Protection agency, which initially reported two injured, had no other immediate reports of injuries or deaths.



“We’re without power, waiting for emergency crews,” said the mayor of Castel Santangelo Sul Nera, a tiny town just north of some of the hard-hit areas of the August 24 quake.

I posted this event in Quake Watch and no one replied.

I assumed everyone is focusing on the elections here in the states.

I am praying there is no death toll.

The one in August I believed killed 300+ people.

That area has really been rocking today.

I just went and looked. I think quakewatch is about most quakes and patterns. I put this up here due to the news aspect.

I Hope there is no death toll.
