Earthquake in Italy

The 6.6-magnitude quake of Sunday morning, 30 October, was the Italy's strongest in decade and also strong and long tremors were felt in Rome.  Since 1980 during the earthquake in Irpinia, Campania., these tremors were the strongest and, fortunately and thanks to God, today no deaths reported

Here a list of Italy's most violent earthquakes since 1900

― October 2016 - Norcia, central Italy, magnitude 6.6, no deaths reported so far
― 1980 - Campania, southern Italy (Naples badly hit), magnitude 6.9, up to 5,000 killed
