Earthquake in central Italy

An earthquake of magnitude 6.2 (Richter) struck central Italy (in particular the Regions of Lazio, Marche and Umbria) at 3.36am of August 24, 2016.

Over 2,000 minor shocks were registered since Wednesday.

The most heavily affected towns are Accumuli, Amatrice and Pescara del Tronto, with a provisional death toll of 290. Families were torn apart, hundreds of people were wounded and 2,500 displaced.

The abovementioned towns (Amatrice in particular) were almost totally destroyed by the earthquake; hundreds of families have lost all their properties.

Saturday August 27 was declared day of national mourning.

Rescue operations kicked-off immediately after the major shock. Also thanks to the solidarity of the Italian people who donated millions of Euros, hundreds of lives were saved and all wounded/displaced were assisted.
The Government is now preparing for the reconstrucion phase.

Italy warmly thanks foreign Authorities and people who have shown uncommon solidarity.
