I hope none of your family and friends have been affected by the tragedy ,one of my friends wife's family live in Italy and I've checked with him but they all live in the north but they do have one friend who lives in the area who they are trying to contact but can't get through yet hopefully it's just a communication problem.
Let's hope the death toll doesn't go up more once they start clearing the damage.

Hi Bob,
'Til now me, my family and my friends are all OK....communications are very difficult ....telephone lines are all overpowered, especially in our zone...the real problem is that have been shocked many small towns over the mountains (Appennini) very difficult to rescue..roads and bridges are damaged...

Hi Marco,

We had a couple of small tremors here over the last 2 years they only lasted a few seconds and that is scary. Luckily for us we are too far north to have felt last nights one. Our thoughts are with you and all those affected.

Auguri

Marco,

The UK TV stations are giving this huge coverage, heard about the huge "aftershock" this morning, and they have said there have been 600 small aftershocks. That must be worrying for everyone.

Once again I wish you all the best.

Jerry
