Oct 27,2016 strongest earthquake in Italy.

Oct 27, 2016A powerful 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked central Italy

A powerful 6.6-magnitude earthquake rocked central Italy on Sunday morning, injuring at least 20 people, in the strongest tremor to hit the country in more than three decades. The earthquake follows tremors last week and comes on the heels of a devastating quake in August, which killed nearly 300 people and flattened entire villages.The quake struck 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) north of Norcia, the US Geological Survey reported.
Sunday's earthquake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles), according to the US Geological Survey, making the epicenter relatively shallow. Generally, the more shallow the epicenter, the more a quake is felt at the earth's surface, and the more damage it is likely to cause.

oThe quake struck 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) north of Norcia, the US Geological Survey reported.
o Fire and rescue services said six people had been pulled from rubble in Norcia.
o There were no immediate reports of deaths -- many residents had not returned since a devastating quake in August.
o There have been about 200 aftershocks since Sunday's quake in the border area between the Marche and Umbria regions, according to National Institute for Geophysics and Vulcanology.
o Some villages are cut off, so the impact there has not been assessed, said Fabrizio Curcio, the civil protection chief.
o Some 15,000 people are without electricity, according to Curcio.
o Much of the Basilica of San Benedetto in Norcia collapsed.
