Mayor of #Italia/n town of #Amatrice says people are buried under debris and town 'no longer exists'

The shaking appears to have woken up quite a few residents in central Italy. Besides Rome,aftershocks were also felt in Florence. 

Jenny Parkinson, a Rome resident, wrote on Twitter the building she was inside “swayed for what seemed an age – bed rocking, lightshades swinging. Horrid!”

At least 6 dead in Central Italy as quake devastates towns – reports Italy Earthquake. 

The mayor of Amatrice near Rieti, Sergio Perozzi, told state-run RAI Radio 1 that buildings had been destroyed in the city centre and that the lights had gone out.

He said he was unable to get in touch with emergency responders or reach the hospital.

"What can I tell you? It's a tragedy," he said.

Many buildings in towns near the epicentre had crumbled, Mr Perozzi toldRaiNews.

"It's a drama, half of our town is destroyed, there are people under the debris," he said.

He told La Repubblica that at least two people were dead.

"Our town has gone. There are people under the rubble, I fear there will be many dead," he said.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
