***Second earthquake strikes Tues May 29.  Read more here***

Once again natural disaster has struck Northern Italy, this time with another earthquake measuring 6.0.  At last report, there were 5 dead and many more injured and thousands homeless or without power.  Emilia Romagna is the area of Italy effected by the recent quake.

For those that have been following the progress in the Cinque Terre, I am happy to report that all is well at this time in both Vernazza and Monterosso.

Here is a complete article from the New York Times.  Read here.

I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.

Love it??  Pass it on!

    We were in Genoa and felt it – very scary! It happened around 4 am Italy time, and our entire room moved…yikes!

    It’s such a tragedy to see so many historical buildings, many that have been beautifully restored, ruined in the earthquake. Gald to hear things are progressing smoothly – sending my wishes for a speedy recovery to the area.

    My husband and I will be traveling to Italy at the end of June, and I did a search to see how this tragedy affected the Cinque Terre area. I’m glad to learn all is well in Monterosso, and my prayers go out to those impacted by now two earthquakes. Thanks for posting.
