Poor Italy

We still don’t know a lot of the details of the earthquake in Italy. They are saying the epicentre is Norcia (below, in June), but it seems the worst damage was done in the surrounding towns. It is one of my favourite parts of Italy, but unfortunately also very earthquake-prone.

UPDATE: apparently there *IS* a lot of damage in Norcia, but it isn’t as obvious in the news images. I’m now seeing stories that the church in these pictures is badly damaged on the inside. I suppose we’ll hear more soon.

When we were staying in Norcia we were discussing how another earthquake wouldn’t be far off.
