Italy woke up at night - level 3, A12
It was 4 o’clock in the morning when many people woke up in some cities in Italy. They were scared and they left their houses very fast. A strong earthquake hit the region near Bologna. Bologna is a city where Ferraris are made.
The centre of the earthquake was only 5 kilometres underground and old historic buildings started to collapse. The falling walls destroyed cars parked nearby. Hospitals in the area were evacuated.
6 people died during the earthquake and about 50 more people were injured. It was the region’s worst earthquake in 600 years.
