Quake devastates mountain towns in central Italy.
A strong earthquake devastated a string of mountain towns in central Italy, trapping residents under hills of rubble, with at least 10 people believed killed and many missing.

The quake struck at 3:30 a.m. when most people were asleep.  Homes and roads damaged 170 km (105 miles) east of Rome.  The town of Amatrice was flattened, debris filled the streets of Accumoli.

"Now that daylight has come, we see that the situation is even more dreadful than we feared, with buildings collapsed, people trapped under the rubble and no sound of life," said Accumoli mayor Stefano Petrucci.  Wide cracks appeared like open wounds on the buildings that were still standing.

Death Toll Climbs to 120 After Earthquake in Italy
8/24/16

At least 120 people were killed in a magnitude 6.2 earthquake that struck central Italy early Wednesday as most residents were sleeping in their homes.

Workers continues to search for residents buried under the rubble of collapsed homes and buildings.

Officials say the towns of Accumoli and Amatrice appear to be the hardest hit by the quake, which struck at 3:36 a.m. local time.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who said he plans to travel today to the affected area, thanked the rescue workers and vowed a sustained national effort to find any survivors and assist the injured and homeless.

"No family, no city, no hamlet will be left alone," he said.

Emergency responders are facing power outages and ruptured gas lines.

U.S. citizen Michael Gilroy was with his girlfriend on the second floor of a three-story hotel in the town of Montepulciano when the quake hit.

"It was just before 4:00 in the morning," he said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "We gathered our stuff and ran out as quickly as we could with everyone else."

"On the way out, we saw a pretty big chandelier swaying from side to side, and I think that’s when we knew for sure," Gilroy added.

Gilroy said the destruction was devastating in Montepulciano, which is nestled atop a hill in southern Tuscany. He and his girlfriend have since left the town for Rome.

"It looks like there are multiple homes that have come down completely into the roads," he said. "These roads are very, very narrow, and the homes are built on top of each other, and they’re all brick, and when they come down, there’s not a lot of space in between."

The U.S. State Department has urged Americans in the area to contact their loved ones.

Tremors were felt as far away as Rome, more than 100 miles from the quake's epicenter.

In the town of Amatrice, the damage was so extensive that Mayor Sergio Pirozzi said, "The town isn't here anymore," The Associated Press reported.

The quake was felt across four regions of central Italy: Lazio, Umbria, Abruzzo and Marche.

The central Apennine region, a mountainous area of central Italy, has had several significant temblors, according to the USGS.

In April 2009, a 6.3 magnitude quake near the town of L’Aquila killed at least 295 people, injured over 1,000 and left at least 55,000 homeless.

In September 1997, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake in the area killed 11 people and injured over 100, destroying approximately 80,000 homes in the Marche and Umbria regions.

On Jan. 13, 1915, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake near Avezzano killed approximately 32,000 people.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Italy quake death toll rises
Aug 25, 2016
debka  -  Another temblor strikes Italy as death toll rises to 247, hundreds still missing.  Rescuers continued to search for survivors.

https://www.rt.com/news/357067-italy-quake-death-toll-search


63 DEAD after 6.2 earthquake rocks Italy.
Aug 24, 2016  -  UPDATE
-  Four towns were almost wiped off the map in seconds.  At least 63 people were killed and 150 people are missing.  Rescuers hear children's screams from the rubble.  The quake was so powerful that it even rocked buildings in Rome 100 miles away and was felt as far away as Croatia.  The falling bridges and landslides meant some areas are still cut off with emergency teams only able to get there on foot.

Race for Survivors in Italy as Quake Death Toll Climbs to 267
8/26/16

Rescue workers raced to find survivors one day after a powerful 6.2 magnitude earthquake rocked central Italy, killing at least 267, injuring nearly 400 more and leaving thousands homeless.

A powerful 4.7 magnitude aftershock hit the area at 6:28 AM local time Friday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Wednesday's quake nearly leveled the towns of Amatrice, Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto. Of the casualties, 193 have been confirmed so far in Amatrice, 11 in Accumuli and 46 in Arquata del Tronto, according to Italy's Civil Protection agency.

Tremors were felt as far away as Rome, more than 100 miles from the quake's epicenter.

Italy's earthquake institute reported 150 aftershocks in the 12 hours following the initial quake, the strongest measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale
.

The Italian government allocated 234 million euros to the search and recovery effort on Thursday, as glimmers of hope buoyed rescue teams who worked through the night in a desperate search for people trapped under collapsed buildings.

Early Thursday, firefighters pulled a 10-year-old girl alive from the rubble in the small town of Pescara del Tronto, nestled in Ascoli Piceno province in the Marche region.

"You can hear something under here. Quiet, quiet," one rescue worker said, according to the Associated Press, before soon urging her on: "Come on, Giulia, come on, Giulia."

Cheers broke out when she emerged from the wreckage.

Meanwhile, another person was rescued by two men who spotted his hand in the rubble of his crumbled home.

"I can only remember that I couldn't breathe," he told The AP from his hospital bed. "I thought I was dead."

Still, the death toll continued to climb as more and more bodies were recovered. Aerial footage showed what little remains of the towns hit hardest by Wednesday's quake.

"Unfortunately, 90 percent we pull out are dead, but some make it, that's why we are here," said Christian Bianchetti, a volunteer from Rieti province who worked through the night in the small town of Amatrice, located in Rieti province in the Lazio region.

The damage was so extensive in Amatrice that Mayor Sergio Pirozzi said, "The town isn't here anymore."

Pirozzi also expressed concern for the approximately 70 guests staying at the town's Hotel Roma, only a handful of whom have so far been pulled out. The historic town's population swells with visitors in the summer months, likely adding to the quake's toll.

Italy's health minister, Beatrice Lorenzin, visited the devastated area Wednesday and noted that many of the victims were children.

Italian Premier Matteo Renzi also visited the zone Wednesday, greeted rescue teams and survivors, and pledged that "No family, no city, no hamlet will be left behind."

The U.S. State Department has so far not reported any U.S. citizen casualties, saying that the U.S. Embassy was working to verify the welfare and whereabouts of U.S. citizens in the area.

The State Deptartment advised U.S. citizens to avoid the region of central Italy near the towns of Amatrice, Accumoli, Arquata del Tronto, and Pescara del Tronto.

"Many roads have been blocked," the State Dept. said in a statement, noting that "numerous aftershocks have already been felt throughout the region, and there is the potential for further aftershocks."

The central Apennine region, a mountainous area of central Italy, has had several significant temblors, according to the USGS.

In April 2009, a 6.3 magnitude quake near the town of L’Aquila killed at least 295 people, injured more than 1,000 and left at least 55,000 homeless.

In September 1997, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake in the area killed 11 people and injured more than 100, destroying approximately 80,000 homes in the Marche and Umbria regions.

On Jan. 13, 1915, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake near Avezzano killed approximately 32,000 people.

Italy quake death toll rises over 280
Aug 27, 2016
 -  African migrants volunteered to take part in the relief efforts in Italy as the number of casualties reached 281.  They cleared up the ground so that tents could be erected, in which survivors who have nowhere to go are to spend their nights. They also helped free up space for a helicopter landing site.  At least 281 people died.

No one in the world is safe

 -  No one in the world is safe from major earthquakes overdue.  Overdue high magnitude earthquakes are expected to strike at any moment along some of Earth’s major fault lines.  No one in the world is safe.
