The Wall Street Journal: Strongest quake in 36 years rocks Italy; no deaths reported

ROME — A strong earthquake struck central Italy early Sunday, injuring about 20 people and flattening historical buildings in small villages and towns that were rattled by temblors just days earlier.

The magnitude 6.6 quake struck at 7:40 a.m. at a magnitude of 6.6, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, making it stronger than the 6.2-magnitude tremor that devastated several small towns and killed nearly 300 people in central Italy in August.
