Earthquake in Italy

on Monday, April 06, 2009

Just to let everyone know my computer technician and I are okay. If you haven't heard the news, a earthquake hit near the city of L'Aquila this morning. At this point in time there are at least 150 dead and another 1,500 injured, 100,000 homeless. The earthquake measured in at 6.3.

According to an article on CNN, there was also another earthquake near Bologna last night. Again, we felt nothing here in our area, thankfully.

150 dead? I remember in the morning when the toll was only 17.
100,00 homeless? How terrible.
I'm glad you are OK though

I guess the impact is a lot like a quake hitting the area of San Francisco. I read that this morning but didn't believe the report headline.. Glad you've been able to report and all is okay!
