A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Marche region in central Italy, just hours after a 5.4-magnitude tremor damaged buildings and cut power lines across the area. Buildings in the region have been damaged, but there have been no reports of fatalities.


A series of powerful aftershocks between magnitude 4 and 4.9 struck the area about five hours after the first tremor.

The strongest earthquake occurred 9.18 p.m. on Wednesday, 71 km (44 miles) east of Perugia. The United States Geological Survey reported it as a 6.0 magnitude temblor, while Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said it was a 5.9.
