Demolition’s Aftermath

The death toll from the devastating earthquake in Italy rises some more.


As rescue crews dig through the rubble, survivors are steeling into a shaky aftermath. Following last week’s 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck central Italy, thousands have been displaced. 290 have been killed. Some towns have been completely destroyed while a few, such as Norcia, suffered very little damage thanks to a government program that reinforced buildings in earthquake-prone areas. The Pope is planning a visit to the area, while museums nationwide are donating ticket sales.
