Dozens dead, many hurt as big earthquake hits Italy
Interior Minister Roberto Maroni visited the area and said the death toll had surpassed 50.
Luca Spoletini, a Civil Protection Department spokesman, said the quake may have made up to 50,000 people homeless. Some 26 cities and towns were seriously damaged.
In the small town of Onna alone, 10 people were killed, said a Reuters photographer who saw a mother and her infant daughter carried away in the same coffin.
Not to contribute too much to the "WooWoo"-side of things but, wasn't there a prediction or prophesy of some sort saying that the second-to-last Pope of the Catholic church would be walking through a destroyed Rome?
That he would be stepping over the bodies of the dead, and would thus be forced to re-locate the seat of the Church elsewhere, just before the Apostasy that would give rise to the Last Pope in the time of the Anti-Christ?
Could that time be near?
Weeks before the disaster, an Italian scientist had predicted a major quake around L'Aquila, based on concentrations of radon gas around seismically active areas.
Seismologist Gioacchino Giuliani was reported to police for "spreading alarm" and was forced to remove his findings from the Internet. Italy's Civil Protection Agency reassured locals at the end of March that tremors being felt were "absolutely normal" for a seismic area.
