Earthquake in central Italy

A terrible earthquake struck central Italy at 3.36 this morning, August 24th 2016. We would like to express all our sympathy to all the people who are suffering in Amatrice, Accumoli and other nearby villages. At the same time, we wanted to reassure all our students that, although it might seem relatively close to L'Aquila from a non-Italian viewpoint, the hit area is actually at around 1 hour's drive from here. And, besides that, the geological fault affected by the earthquake is different from the one running underneath L'Aquila. Therefore, as far as this specific earthquake is concerned, it is not strictly related to the city of L'Aquila, although several shakes were clearly felt even here. 

Once again, let us express our condolence to the all the people who lost their beloved in this terrible disaster.
