Italy Experiences Aftershocks with the Death Toll at 267


On Friday, three days after a national disaster hit the country aftershocks are still taking place. A series of nine aftershocks have been reported to have struck the affected areas through the night till the early morning hours. One of the aftershocks is said to have measured a 4.7 magnitude on the Richter scale.

So far the total death toll has risen to 267 and 400 left injured amidst thousands of citizens left homeless. About 1,000 aftershocks have been felt since the major 6.2 magnitude earthquake rocked the region on Wednesday morning.

Over 5,000 rescuers are currently working day and night shifts to find survivors buried under the rubble despite hopes of there being any survivors growing smaller and smaller.

Thousands are now sleeping in temporary shelters while about 2100 have pitched tents to sleeping forth second night in a row since the earthquake.

Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi declared a state of emergency as well as releasing 50 million Euros in aid to fund the recovery of missing persons.

According to the Associated Press, 215 people have so far been recovered alive; however, two days have passed without any living person getting rescued.
