Italy quake – level 3

03-11-2016 07:00

Thousands of people are thought to be homeless after a 6.6-magnitude quake struck, its epicentre being in the town of Norcia, which was already reeling from a series of tremors. Norcia is in central Italy.

Around 300 people died from a quake in the same region in August this year. Luckily, no fatalities have been reported this time, but dozens have been injured.

Difficult words: reel from (be shocked), tremor (a little earthquake), fatality (a death), dozens (many).
