Earthquakes Hit Italy
Two powerful earthquakes struck near Visso, Italy on Wednesday. The first one had a 5.5-magnitude and the second one a 6.1-magnitude. There are no reports of injuries yet, but there was damage in Visso and other nearby towns. A spokesman for the Red Cross said that the shock of the first earthquake caused people to exit their houses, which turned out to be fortunate when the second, more powerful, quake hit their homes just a few hours later. The site of these quakes is only fifty miles north of Amatrice, the site of the earthquake in August that killed nearly three hundred Italians.
