The ground has been shaking constantly here. In the two days since the earthquake, I’ve felt several very strong aftershocks, but fortunately, they haven’t caused any real damage.
These photos show some of the damage caused by Tuesday’s big earthquake in the town of Modena. The historic Chiesa del Voto church suffered badly. A large ball of decorative granite fell on the sidewalk, creating a huge crack. It almost hit a woman. The police and fire fighters are now working to repair the church.
