Italy continues to reel under seismic pressure as reports indicate a new 4.4-magnitude aftershock with a depth of about 9 km has rattled the region not far from the town of Arquata del Tronto in central Italy, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre reported. The area suffered a deadly earthquake four days ago.

The aftershock’s center is located nearly 7 km from Arquata del Tronto. The tremor was felt in Rome, situated more than 150 kilometers south of the town, according to local broadcaster RaiNews24. A powerful earthquake hit central Italy on Wednesday night, leaving at least 290 people dead with the death toll still rising. CONTINUE
