The magnitude 6.3 quake left at least 150 people are dead, dozens missing, 1,500 injured and some 50,000 homeless after the pre-dawn quake struck L’Aquila and its region.  Between 3,000 and 10,000 buildings are thought to have been damaged in L’Aquila, making the 13th Century city of 70,000 uninhabitable for some time.  

My heart goes out to those during this difficult time.  The earthquake was about 60 miles outside of Rome and all I can say is, thank God it wasn’t rome.  Can you imagine if the earthquake had hit the city…the number of famous buildings, the Vatican, and obviously all the tourists and inhabitants.  

Anyway, any earthquake is horrible and I hope that there are not many more dead.
Below theres a video of the aftermath…it’s very sad.
