Yet another significant earthquake shook central Italy last week, adding to the two experienced only four days previously.

This latest quake was measured at 6.6 on the Richter scale, making it the most powerful to hit the country since the 6.9 magnitude seismic event of 1980 in the Irpinia region which left over two thousand people dead.
