A magnitude 3.


A magnitude 3.8 earthquake struck central Italy on Tuesday.

No injuries or damage were reported, but the tremor hit the same area where many buildings have been destroyed in the past few months.

Since August, some 55,000 quakes have been recorded along Italy’s spine, which sits on African and Eurasian tectonic plates.

One man said: “It was strong enough, short but strong.”

“This is destroying us psychologically, we are all like cats,” said another women.

Tuesday morning’s jolt is the latest in an incessant swarm of quakes to hit Italy.

Only last month, dozens of people were killed in the Abruzzo region after a series of earthquakes triggered an avalanche, burying a luxury hotel.
