Three earthquakes over 5.0R shake Central Italy.

Tripples and quadruples are shaking central Italy today, where the tremours are felt even in Rome,  as can be seen from the list of events above.
According to the country's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, the epicenter of the quake was between L'Aquila and Rieti, the same area struck by a strong quake in August last year. A severe aftershock followed the first quake an hour later.
The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre Tremors reported that the quake was recorded 69 miles northeast of Rome and was about 6 miles deep. Tremors were felt in the capital.
The area is still recovering from a 6.2-magnitude earthquake that rocked the region in August, killing more than 200 people and leaving thousands homeless, according to Italy's Civil Protection Department.
