Dozens of aftershocks jolt Italy’s quake zone

PanARMENIAN.Net - Dozens of aftershocks hit northeastern Italy overnight as thousands of jittery survivors spent the night in tent camps after the region's second killer quake in days, AFP reported.

Tuesday May 29 quake killed at least 16 people and injured 350 just nine days after a similar disaster killed six people and left thousands homeless.

Residents in cities across northern and central Italy including Pisa and Venice rushed into the streets in panic when the quake struck 60 kilometres (40 miles) east of Parma at 0700 GMT, as many were arriving for work.

Just a few hours later, already shaken residents endured a terrifying five-minute ordeal when the region was struck by three tremors of between 5.1 and over 5.3 magnitude, sparking panic and bringing down weakened buildings.

Rescue workers were searching for one person still missing Wednesday.

A 65-year-old woman was the last person to be pulled alive from the rubble Tuesday night, after firemen heard her cries. She was saved by sheltering under a kitchen table as the five-storey building in the town of Cavezzo collapsed.
