Over 21 People Dead After Earthquake Hit Central Italy [PHOTOS]

Wednesday, August 24, 2016


Over 21 people have been killed including a young family of four after a devastating 6.2 magnitude earthquake hit Italy overnight.

The earthquake hit 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) southeast of Norcia at 3:36 a.m., the United States Geological Survey said. Its tremors rattled Rome -- about 100 miles away.

Panicked residents were sent fleeing into the streets of numerous towns and cities as the powerful quake brought buildings - including a hospital - crashing to the ground earlier today.

Rescuers have been seen pulling bloodied victims to safety and frantically searching for survivors after voices were heard under the rubble.

The earthquake was felt in far away rome and it has left half of the town in ruins.
