There have been a lot of larger earthquakes around Italy recently, with injuries and deaths. Let us hope that no one is injured or killed in Norcia. That is a large quake.

2 km depth and by Norcia? They cannot get a break. I pray for no casualties.

Yes, the one by Norcia in August was devastating. Then another set recently.

Local sources always minimize the intensity of the quakes… they said 7.1 at first and now stick to 6.1
USGS says differently.

USGS says 6.6 They often re evaluate the number right after for many reasons.

USGS is reporting 10km deep. That's still not good. I hope there's not too many casualties. Aftershocks will be strong too.
Thanks for posting the map.

Man, those people can't catch a break. The last one pretty much leveled nearby Amatrice (coincidentally, a town my husband had visited years ago) I can't imagine that town would welcome another 6-pointer, ruins on top of ruins

Stricken residents have been given nearly no time for recovery after each one as of late. In hopes lives remained safe.

An article from August explains issues residents are facing;


Rémy Bossu, head of the ­European-Mediterranean Seismological Center in France, said shallow earthquakes of this magnitude are not highly unusual in the zone hit Wednesday. In addition to the L’Aquila earthquake, another hit Umbria and the Marches in 1997 that severely damaged the famous Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.

He said the main problem in the area was the large number of older buildings that cannot withstand earthquakes of this magnitude. “The problem is that the [earthquake-proof] building code only applies to new buildings,” Bossu said.

“To retrofit an old building is a very complex and costly operation. So it’s only done for key buildings, such as hospitals.” In Amatrice, many of the buildings were not reinforced to withstand earthquakes of this size — including the 1940s convent with the missing residents.
So urce

It is already possible to hear of threats, of some mysterious earthquake that could strike in the city of Rome with massive force. Question is: How come? The weird answer appears to be the fact that there's a dormant volcano beneath Rome.


Is that realistic? Could such an event provoke the govt in Rome to declare martial law, and use is as a provocation for a military emergency?

Earthquakes in rapid succession are an obvious orchestration by the Italian govt to extort money from ECB/Germany.
Clear ultimatum must come from BuBa before the impending hyperinflation collapse of Germany into another weimar republic.
