Two powerful earthquakes hit central Italy on Wednesday evening.
The first, a 5.5 magnitude earthquake was said to have happened at 7 p.m. between Perugia and Macerata, 50 miles north of a catastrophic earthquake that claimed about 300 lives late August.
The U.S. Geological Survey, USGS, reported that the second, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake, struck near Perugia, 3.2 kilometres from Visso, central Italy. This happened 2 hours after the first quake.
Both earthquakes have a depth of 10 kilometers which implies a lot of shaking going on in the region.
No damage assessment has been reported by the USGS yet.
