Strong earthquake rocks Rome

Rome rattled by strong earthquake

Strong 5.6-magnitude earthquake hit a rural region of central Italy on Wednesday evening, with the impact felt as far away as Rome.

Rome emergency services are inundated with calls. There are no immediate reports of casualties or damage. But the quake shook centuries-old palazzi in Rome’s historic center.

The earthquake was detected at 7:11pm local time, about 66km to the southeast of Perugia, striking a mountainous part of the Marche region and lasting several seconds.
