Another Powerful Earthquake Rocks Central Italy

Date 10.31.2016

6.6-magnitude earthquake hit central Italy, injuring at least 20 people. It was the strongest quake to hit the country in more than three decades. Not very many people were hurt since this area has already been evacuated thanks to a string of dangerous quakes. Back in August, an earthquake killed almost 300 people and destroyed entire villages in the same area of central Italy. Then last week, two earthquakes hit back to back in the region,damaging historical buildings and leaving a lot of people without homes. Yesterday’s quake was felt across most of the country, and a lot of the towns that were rebuilding from previous quakes are now dealing with even more damage. Italy’s PM said “we will rebuild everything.”
