As usual, there is plenty going on in Italy at the moment. This is just a brief summary of some of the stories which have caught my little eye over the last couple of weeks or so.
This week’s images of Italy is devoted to the corageous people of Abruzzo – the Italian region which has suffered great loss of life and damage after the earthquake.
Tremors are continuing to shake the area around the city of L’Aqulia in the earthquake stricken region of Abruzzo in central Italy.
It is still not clear how many victims the recent earthquake which hit the Italian city of L’Aqulia and the surrounding area in Abruzzo will claim, however some of the comments left on another of my posts on this tragedy left me thinking that a list of the deceased might be useful.
As time passes, and further aftershocks continue to jolt the earthquake struck region of Abruzzo in Italy, more related news is emerging. Not all of it is pleasant either.
Abruzzo is not all that well known outside of Italy, so here is a map to help you understand just where in Italy this tragedy took place.
It hit at around 3 in the morning and left death and destruction in its wake. Thousands have lost their homes, over 150 have lost their lives and some 250 are still unaccounted for.
