A total of four quakes over 5.0 on the Richter Scale and more than 200 aftershocks have been recorded in central Italy. A man was found dead under the debris of a building in the town of Castel Castagna, in the province Teramo.
Among the affected municipalities are Amatrice and Montereale were hard hit by a deadly earthquake last year.
The mayor of Montereale said resignedly:
‘‘We have had this problem since 2009”, Massimiliano Georgi told. “Every time we get back on our feet, another one comes along. Unfortunately we have to live with this problem and we have to try to keep going.’‘
