M6.6 earthquake in Italy

Written by staff reporter

An M6.6 earthquake has occurred 125km north east of Italy's capital, Rome. The tremor was reported at 06:40 GMT and was followed by at least 200 aftershocks since then.

Damage to infrastructure, power outages and some injuries were reported.
The incident comes a week after a similar earthquake in the same region, which did not have a significant impact, and two months after a quake in central Italy killed 297 people and left infrastructure destroyed in several areas, including in and around Amatrice, Accumoli and Arquata del Tronto, located near Norcia. The region is likely to experience further earthquakes over the near-term, and risk experts at Red24 warn of further damage to buildings and road infrastructure, and associated casualties.
