Norcia CathedralA strong earthquake has struck near Norcia in central Italy, destroying numerous buildings.

The quakes come nearly two months after a major earthquake killed almost 300 people and destroyed several towns.

Sunday’s quake measured magnitude 6.6, larger than August’s quake and aftershocks last week, and was at a depth of only 1.5km (0.9 miles).

There were no immediate reports of casualties, but tremors were felt in the capital Rome.

The US Geological Survey said the epicentre of the quake was 68km south-east of the regional centre of Perugia and close to the small town of Norcia.

    And the doves this Pope released were attacked immediately by a black bird and a seagull a sign of things to come for Italy. They have lost their Vatican to a Muslim sympathizer and like St. Francis told the Sultan when you mess with God’s people then that which makes us tolerant makes us strong so back off cause the Crusaders coming to take back the Holy Lands (not a direct quote but close enough).

    Now they are overloaded with refugees who go into their churches and overturn ancient statues of Mary and Jesus and the Saints, lost forever. Wake up Italy. Me thinks the Big Guy not happy with Italy.
