other cities such as Florence or Naples.

locations but never had the strength of this time. There are no news
of fatalities, although there are some injured people.
The magnificent Basilica of St. Benedict in Norcia, has collapsed.
Nearly 5,000 residents of the town of Norcia, especially affected by
the earthquake, are anxious and fearful because the land does not
stop shaking. The access to the city center has been closed. Numerous
buildings and churches have collapsed or suffered major damage. Three
days earlier, two earthquakes (one magnitude 5.4 and another 6.2.)
