Italian Quake

What a horrific scene unfolding in Italy, where a nearly 7.0 magnitude quake hit a small historic town and virtually leveled it. Dorms, apartments, historic buildings, restaurants, etc. were all shaken and many collapsed, crumbled or shattered. The death toll is rising and the casualties include women and children, students studying abroad, and American citizens. A horrible day in Italy, plain and simple. And only slight optimism remains--in the volunteers that continue to pick through the rubble looking for survivors.
