Earthquake 5.5 magnitude rattles Central Italy, Rome (Local time: 19:10, Depth 9 km)



A strong earthquake 5.5 magnitudeis rattling Rome, just two months after a powerful temblor toppled villages in central Italy.

There were no immediate reports of damage.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) initially stated the earthquake magnitude as 5.6, but figures from Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology revised it down to 5.4. 

The exact epicenter of the tremblor remains unclear, but it was relatively shallow, at about 9km below ground.

But the quake shook centuries-old palazzi in Rome's historic center.

The Aug. 24 quake destroyed hilltop village of Amatrice and other nearby towns.
