MASSIVE Earthquake Hits Rome During The Night

An earthquake that has measured 6.1 on the Richter scale has rattled Rome and Central Italy in the middle of night.

There are no reports of damage but state-run RAI radio said people were running into the streets just after 3:30AM.

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Center put the magnitude at 6.1 and said the epicentre was northeast of Rome, near Rieti.

The U.S. Geological Survey put the magnitude at 6.2.

It was felt in central Rome, as people homes in the historic centre felt a long swaying.
