Jeez. That does not look good...

Wasn't that long ago there was that massive earthquake in the more rural area of Italy, right?

Apparently it's considered as an aftershock of that earthquake in August. It's a bit further north.

Powerful 6.6 earthquake hits central and southern Italy

A powerful earthquake has hit central and southern Italy just days after tremors saw hundreds forced from their homes.

There were no immediate reports of death or injuries but the trembling sent buildings already damaged by previous quakes crumbling to the ground.

Pictures showed nuns and monks running to safety as the town church in the central Italian town of Norcia, near Perugia, in Umbria, collapsed.
