Two powerful earthquakes hit central Italy on Wednesday evening. The quakes struck two hours apart destroying historic buildings and cutting power lines.
According to reports, the first tremor measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale came at 7.10pm local time on Wednesday, near Visso in Macerata province while the second, measuring 6.1, came two hours later, wiping out buildings and plunging homes into darkness.
Some buildings in Rome, 80 miles away, also felt the impact of the earthquakes.
There are no reports of serious casualties.
Wednesday’s twin earthquakes comes two months after a devastating earthquake took place north, 45 miles away. Recall that the August earthquake killed nearly 300 people.
