Drone footage shows Italy earthquake destruction

Posted by Anup Baral | October 28, 2016 :
The damage was starting to emerge on Thursday after two earthquakes struck central Italy, the same region hit by a deadly quake in August. The first temblor struck at 5:10 p.m. local time on Wednesday and carried a magnitude of 5.4. But the second one a little more than two hours later was eight times stronger at 6.1, according to the US Geological Survey. They crumbled churches and buildings, knocked out power and sent panicked residents into the rain-drenched streets just two months after a powerful earthquake in the same region killed nearly 300 people.
