TelegraphUK: Italy was hit by two earthquakes in quick succession on Wednesday night, with mountain villages suffering extensive damage and the town of Ussita “finished”.
The epicentre of both earthquakes was near the town of Visso in the central Marche region, close to where nearly 300 people were killed by a devastating quake two months ago. The tremors were felt as far away as Rome, Venice and Naples.
Panic-stricken locals in Visso ran into the streets and piazzas of the town.
“The walls fell in on me,” said a woman who rushed out of her office. MORE
