I saw hell…
That’s what the mayor of one of the Italian towns hit by earthquakes said, and that’s probably a fair description of the destruction. This is the same region which suffered quakes in August, and some of the villages basically no longer exist. Many of this area’s ancient buildings had survived the August quakes, but not this one. For some of these picturesque spots, the future may indeed be finished.
Put the people of central Italy in your prayers, and let us hope that there is much less loss of life this time than in August.
UPDATE: So far there is no reported loss of life. Drones have taken to the skies to record the incredible damage.
