This Is Not Déjà Vu: Another Earthquake Rocked Central Italy
For the second time in a week, central Italy was rocked by a major earthquake. Fortunately, neither Sunday’s 6.6 magnitude quake nor Wednesday’s 5.5 and 6.1 magnitude earthquakes caused any fatalities. Unfortunately, the Italian government estimates that as many as 100,000 people could be displaced. Many residents had evacuated their homes after Wednesday’s quakes, and even more houses and historic landmarks were destroyed on Sunday, including San Benedetto cathedral in Norcia, a 14th century church.
