ROME – After a series of aftershocks recorded in the evening, at about 3.30am last night the earth trembled at Aquilla, North East of Rome, causing casualties. The Civil Protection has not yet provided a number of the dead but has officially confirmed that the collapses have caused casualties. The earthquake, which was heard throughout central Italy, was of 5.8 magnitude equal to the eighth-ninth degree of the Mercalli scale and the epicenter was recorded five kilometers deep. Many buildings in the historic center of Aquila have collapsed. The building that houses the pharmacy of the “San Salvatore” L’Aquila collapsed. The garrison hospital has suffered several injuries and damage. The police may be considering a possible evacuation, even partial, of the hospital.

VICTIMS – The Civil Protection speaks of 18 victims, including 5 children. This is the situation across the country: – L’AQUILA: 4 deaths, all children – CASTELNUOVO five – POGGIO PICENZE: one – TORMINTARTE one – FOSSA: two of which a little girl – ONNA: 60 – VILLA SANT’ANGELO two.

In addition, over 30 people are missing.

It was a strong earthquake : ”there are thousands of displaced people and 10’s of thousands of buildings collapsed and damaged.” Said the manager of Civil Defense, Augustine Miotto.

There were many people who ran to the streets. From the first information the student area has suffered worst. The dome of the Church of the Holy Souls in the city centre. Even the cathedral has suffered structural damage.

The main shock was followed by over a hundred aftershocks. People felt over 20 of these, the strongest of which, of magnitude 4.6 to 4.37. “There will probably be more aftershocks so it is dangerous to be close to damaged buildings.” The warning comes from the director of Civil Defense Agostino Miozzo.

Traffic blocks for the Rome-L’Aquila (A24) from Rome. The traffic is blocked in the direction of Abruzzo from the GRA (Gra) in the capital.

Aquila – There are people trapped in a house in the historic center, in Via XX Settembre, collapsed and firefighters are digging them out from the rubble.


The dome of the Church of the Holy Souls in the city center is damaged. Even the cathedral has suffered structural damage.

The Student House Caso dello Studente, is badly damaged and maybe some students are still within the building.

Bad damage in Castelnuovo di San Piero Camere where the church has collapsed with 5 victims.

Paganica l’Aquila suffered badly as has Onna and Fossa.

Praying for all the people as my mother suffered greatly during the invasion by the soldiers in 1941 destroyed their homes and some family members. Very bad for us and everyone in the area.

Campotosto, is our village and please Lord, spare the villages and these people of heartache and release anyone trapped. Heal and Help, the innocent residents and visitors to your land Father in Heaven. Gather the little children and keep them safe and warm with the parents. In your name Jesus, we pray your hand performs miracles, as your name is bigger and more powerful than any earthquake. My God we Love thee!!

  14. 15
    Lisa // April 6th, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    Thanks for your message, I do have their address: Via del Panettiere number 7, Onna. Like I said before, their names are Andrea Passamonti and Antonio (Tonino) Centi and the children names are Carla and Ludovica. Please, any news would be appreciated!

    I have read several articles where it says that Onna took the worst damage and seen many pictures of destroyed houses, so my hopes are very dim… :’(

    Hello- I am looking for news on Rome. I know the earthquake was around sixty miles northeast of Rome, but I wanted to know if there is a reason why I cannot get in touch with my two good friends who are at the university. I just want to know they are safe- they’ve been traveling a lot.

    My prayers go to everyone who is searching for news of friends and family and for the people of Italy.

    Thank you – this seems to be the only site where we can get news about the “26 towns” affected by the quake. Still no news out of Montereale – tried to call another cousin in Tivoli to see if she had news about the family but all lines were busy. I am looking for information on the DiBiasi and Aniceti families originally from Mascioni, but some now live in Montereale. I am hoping that no news from the areas north/northwest of L’Aquila is good news. Thank you again.

    Romina // April 7th, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    I have family in Ovindoli and Avezzano (Celano is close by), they felt the earthquake pretty badly, but other than shaken up paesani’s the towns seem to be ok! They were still experiencing some aftershocks as of today (april 7).
    My prayers are with you all in this horrible time. I hope all of your families and friends are safe and accounted for.

    Is aquila very far from Pescara? I have family in Pescara and two of the smaller villages near Pescara – Torre di Passeri and Castiglione a Casauria.
    My heart is going out to everyone in the Abruzzo region.
    I hope by some miracle that everyone is doing O.K.
    Many prayers, and may God keep you all safe.

    This reply for Francesco who was inquiring about Villavallelonga.

    My sister spoke to her husband’s relatives as well as an aunt of ours who live in Villa. They heard what sounded like a bomb, beds rattled and lights flickered on/off – Everyone evacuated their homes and spent a couple of nights al campo sportivo – There is an individual going around saying that Villa will be hit by a stronger tremor – It is not clear if this individual is informed or is just trying to scare people – Why he would want to put fear in people is beyond me. The men have started to go back into their homes but the women are a bit leary. Every one is fine though and no one was hurt. Thank God

    This is for Marc Fogel about your question for Villa Sant Angelo information. The old part of Villa Sant’ Angelo has been heavily damaged. While some structure are completely flattened, others are standing and the inhabitants have fled. The family I know, de Matteis lived in via del Medico, old town, and in Santa Maria, the new street up on the hill. The older couple were brought to l’Aquila for first aid at St. Salvatore hospital, The last I heard was that there were 2 deaths in town, but this is old news. The residents of Villa Sant’Angelo gathered in the piazza after the first quake. If people have places to stay in Pescara and along the coast, they are being encouraged to travel there. This will make rescue efforts and humanitarian needs less difficult in the areas hardest hit in the valley west of Gran Sasso. I hope this helps, news is always at least 3rd hand and very sketchy.

    Ciao Stefania e Tony, grazie per questo messaggio, noi stiamo bene, c’e
    stato molta paura a cerchio ma nessun danno alle persone, mentre c’è stata
    una piccola lesione alla chiesa in piazza . La notte comunque molte persone
    dormono in macchina perchè ci sono ancora piccole scosse ogni giorno. Molti
    invece i danni e i morti a l’Aquila come saprete, soprattutto nelle case
    molto antiche e negli edifici pubblici come l’ospedale e la casa dello
    studente(costruiti da 10-15 anni), questo dimostra come noi italiani siamo
    poco bravi a scegliere i nostri politici.

    ROME, April 7 (Reuters) – A 5.6 magnitude aftershock that struck the central Italian area devastated by Monday’s earthquake has killed at least one person, Italy’s ANSA news agency reported on Tuesday, without citing a source. The aftershock — the most powerful since Monday’s 5.8 to 6.3 magnitude quake — struck the Abruzzo region at 7.47 p.m. (1747 GMT).

    It felled structures in the already battered medieval city of L’Aquila and was felt as far away as Rome, where furniture shook on the upper floors of buildings, witnesses said.

    A glance at towns damaged by quake in Italy
    April 7, 2009 – 8:14am
    A view of the damaged Chiesa della Concezione (Conception Church) in Paganica, central Italy, Tuesday, April 7, 2009. Tens of thousands of people left homeless by the powerful 5.8-magnitude quake slept in makeshift tents that provided little protection against the chilly mountain air. Entire blocks were flattened in the mountain city of L’Aquila and nearby villages by Monday’s temblor that killed at least 179 people and injured 1,500. More than 70 people were still missing.

    By The Associated Press

    (AP) – Italy’s powerful earthquake damaged churches, palaces and medieval towers in a region devastated repeatedly by quakes in past centuries. There are damages sites in towns and cities including:

    _ L’Aquila: Many Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance landmarks were damaged in the city worst hit by the quake, including part of the red-and-white stone basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio. The bell tower of the 16th-century San Bernardino church _ its own construction delayed by 15th century quakes _ and the cupola of the Baroque Sant’Agostino church also fell.

    _ Santo Stefano di Sessanio: the quake brought down the medieval stone Medicean tower, the symbol of the fortified hillside village.

    _ Celano: The main altar of the Baroque Sant’Angelo Church collapsed in this town, the seat of feudal lords who ruled the Abruzzo and Molise regions in the Middle Ages.

    _ Teramo: The quake badly damaged the facade of the church of Sant’Agostino, shifted a bell tower at the convent of San Domenico and brought down the ceiling of the church of Poggio Cono.

    _ Paganica: The baroque church of Santa Maria Assunta in this suburb of L’Aquila was badly damaged, with chunks missing from the pale yellow structure and cracks running through it.

    _ Loreta Apruntino: The quake brought down the bell tower on the church of St. Francis.

    _ Goriano Sicoli: The tremblor badly damaged the facade of the Saint Gemma church, and also destroyed an elementary school.

    I’m from Celano. My relatives have all slept in their cars for a couple of nights. They said there was no damage in Celano to speak of or injuries. Thank God. However I found an article in the Rocky Mount N.C. news (of all places) that lists damage in all the little towns. It says Celano lost an Altar at one of the Oldest Churchs, no one hurt. http://www.rockymounttelegram.com/news/world/a-glance-at-towns-damaged-by-quake-in-italy-533669.html

    Joe,
    Thanks for that update. If you have any more i am sure people would appreciate it.
    This blog is turning out to be one of the most personal experience and hunt for information blogs on the net.
    Joe has set a fine example posting such detailed information, we need more from others : i would like you to extend further afield this blog so that others can find and post information regarding loved ones. Tell your local paper, radio and prefered news blog/site to link to here and let the world know we are all here to help and provide useful information about the Abruzzo Earthquake.
    Remember postings with links need my approval for obvious reasons.
    May God be with you all, family and loved ones.
    David

    joe // April 7th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    I suggest to anyone worried about their relatives and families go to google maps and look at their town in relation to where L’Aquila is. If it is within 6 – 10 miles of L’Aquila then there is probably heavy damage. As stated, Pratola Peligna is fine, so is Villa Lago. Anything near Pescara therefore is fine. There are posts updating the safe towns so just look and see where your town is compared to a safe town. It’s not exact information, but it will ease your mind and you’ll have some info at least.

    Hi guys…I’m Laura, from Bologna, Italy, my city is far away from L’Aquila, but my cousin was studying there…she lived near “La Casa dello Studente” (Student Housing) in the city center. Fortunately she is safe!
    About three hours ago there was another earthquake, and unfortunately there have been other collapses and other victims. For now victims are 228 in total.
    Before this, I knew that in Onna research ended because the authorities have said that there are no missing persons…so victimse are 40. In Villa San’Angelo there are 17. 90% of these little towns is destroyed.
    Some of my friends are there as volunteers….the situation is difficult.
    I’m so sad to tell you these bad news, but I wanted you to know, because I understand that you are worried!! I hope that your familiar in Abruzzo are well! Sorry for my english.

    Marc and Laura (from Bologna),
    Thank you for the new information, grazie molto. The situation is grim in this valley. We originally heard from a cousin who relayed the message to relatives in Rome about conditions in Villa Sant’Angelo. I believe that the family I know have all left safely. Giovanni de Matteis is the town’s constable and will likely still be in the village working with operations.
    Our thoughts, prayers and hopes for the future are with the survivors, their families and friends.
    Le nostre preghiere sono per la gente di Abbruzzo, le loro famiglie e gli amici.

    this article is a little long, but there’s names of deceased in it that someone might recognize…

    On the road beneath Castelnuovo the owner of the petrol station pointed to an aerial photograph of the small hill village. “You see that roof? That is the church of San Giovanni. Where is it now?” He points up the hill. “Gone. Dust. And to think it was only recently restored.”

    The picture was taken by Mr Daniele, who is a hang-gliding enthusiast. He keeps his pictures on the computer in his office. They are of the picturesque villages and towns of Abruzzo, ringed by the snow-capped Apennines.

    “You see that red dot next to the church? That was a car. It belonged to a friend of mine called Emanuele.”

    The car has been covered in rubble and Emanuele is dead. Five people died in Castelnuovo, two of them from Macedonia, who, residents said, rented a house in the village because they thought it would be cheaper than in L’Aquila where they worked, which is 15 miles away.

    * IN PICTURES: Italy earthquake

    Mr Daniele, who lives in the lower part of the village, said that he grabbed a helmet and a torch when the earthquake struck at 3.30am on Monday and headed to the top.

    “People said buildings had collapsed on the top of the hill, but I didn’t believe them. But there was hardly anything left standing,” he said. He heard cries for help and rescued an 84-year-old woman called Palmina who become trapped beneath a wardrobe when her roof collapsed.

    “I climbed up to the terrace . . . moved the wardrobe and carried her down,” he said. “She used to scold me when I was a village boy, but she doesn’t any more.” Most of the 250 residents in Castelnuovo have moved out and tremors threaten to bring down what little masonry is still standing.

    For miles around the regional capital of L’Aquila the story was the same.

    “There are more dead people than living,” said Euro Pezzopane, 68, as he surveyed what was left of the farming village of Onna, a few miles from Castelnuovo. He watched as a crane chewed chunks from the spot where his neighbour, Rina, used to live.

    On each side the houses maintained a delicate balancing act. In the middle there was a hole and somewhere underneath the dirt and the dust was Rina’s body.

    Where there had been barns there was only rubble. Where there had been shops and houses, there were only shells. And where had been friends, family and neighbours, there were only bodies.

    “It is surreal. Everything has gone. This is not just a village, it is one large family,” said Fabrizio Pezzopane, a music teacher. By yesterday afternoon nearly a quarter of the population was confirmed dead. No one had been pulled out alive. “So we are grieving for everyone. The dead are my cousins, my friends, my relatives. There is pain, and shock. But we will get through this,” he said.

    Like the few remaining villagers who stayed to watch the rubble being cleared, he showed no emotion and his eyes were dry.

    Even fewer people had chosen to stay at the village of Paganica. The medieval streets were cordoned off because of the risk of falling masonry, the 16th-century architecture had suffered and the piazza was deserted except for the carabinieri.

    Checcino Antonino, a local journalist whose relatives live in the town, said that its fate lay in the hands of the politicians who control the funds. “We are hostages to Berlusconi,” he said. “We will do what we can to rebuild but it is up to him to decide how the money is spent. Berlusconi and an earthquake are like nitrogen and glycerine — it is a dangerous mixture.”

    Florentino Ciccarelli, a councillor from San Pio delle Camere, the local authority, said that a team of surveyors, architects and historians would see what could be saved. “Although there were months of tremors they were mostly in L’Aquila,” he said. “They were localised. No one thought an earthquake would destroy Castelnuovo.”

    So would the council rebuild it “as it was, where it was”, the boast of the Venetian authorities when the belltower of St Mark’s collapsed in the early 20th century? “If we had the funds, perhaps. The problem is that we are not well known. The problem is that we are not Venice,” he said.

    In L’Aquila emergency workers rested by another empty space where a modern residential block used to stand. There was nothing left to do. Five residents had been pulled out alive. Two married couples and another person were dead by the time they were reached. Teresa Di Paulis sifted through the belongings of her dead grandson. Speaking only to confirm her name, she brushed the dust off school textbooks that had been strewn across the rubble.

    There were toys, table legs and twisted bedspreads. A photograph album lay open showing two young women smiling. No one had claimed it.

    I’ve managed to get contact details to where you can send a request to find out if your loved ones are still with us.

    The Italian Protezione Civile have a list of identified persons who have died in the earthquake.

    They also have a database of people whom have self declared that they are alive.

    If your relatives have not declared they are alive nor or on the list of mortalities then there is the highly unprobable possibility that they are 1 of the 15 mortalities still not identified. (latest total deaths 272)

    When you contact the Italian Civil Protection you must provide

    * your name
    * your contact details ; address/telephone or email

    Users,
    I have watched an english video clip about Villa Sant’Angelo on Sky news.

    There is not alot of information but you may be able to recognise some streets or property.
    Here is the link;

    I would like to know if Pettorano Sul Gizio was damaged. My heart goes out to all of those who have been effected…

    Christine (N. Ireland) // April 8th, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    The video is entitled “Quake Hits Three Generations of One Family”. It’s at the top left hand side of the video clips at the bottom of the page.

    Diana, I found this:

    GOOD NEWS – only minor damage in Rocca di Mezzo

    My partner’s uncle was able to call my partner’s sister in Washington D.C using a friend’s satellite phone. He reports minor damage there and that everyone is okay.

    Thanks for the updates, Fighting Irish.

  139. 141
    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 1:46 am

    Jennifer:

    Pettorano Sul Gizio is 120 Km south of L’ Aquila, so I don’t think you have to worry. It’s near our village of Villa Lago and we confirmed they are okay. Take care.

    Thank you all for so much information, and my heart goes out to you and your families lost, missing, or suffering.

    I’m still trying to find out about my relatives….delSignore, Guisseppe e Anne e famiglia, in Capo la Villa, Tornimparte. Any news about the area is appreciated.
    Should I call the Croce Rossa?? I don’t know what to do.
    Grazie.
    Anne Consoletti, Westwood, MA, USA

  143. 145
    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 3:44 am

    Call the red cross Anne, because Tornimparte was very close to the 6.3 monday…MIPC posted info at the top of the page where you can send name requests…

  144. 146
    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 3:55 am

    I’m reading that the epicenter WAS Tornimparte…

  145. 147
    Anne Consoletti // April 9th, 2009 at 4:25 am

    This site has posted Tornimparte as the epicenter, which of course has me freaked out. Other sites have L’Aquila as the actual epicenter. Either way, the two are close.I can’t get in touch with anyone, but I will try the Croce Rossa.

    Thank you all and God Bless.

    Fritz Seefeldt // April 9th, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    Christine, (northern Ireland),
    Thank you for the video from Villa Sant’ Angelo. I found it to be heart breaking. Its almost impossible to imagine how these dear people will be able to rebuild the town after such devastation and loss of life. The places that were familiar to me are either gone or will need to be torn down. I’m a nurse at a hospital here in the states. I work in oncology and just got off the night shift when i watched the video. I’m surrounded with patients many of whom are dying of their illness, but they are surrounded by loved ones and caring health professionals. This kind of tragedy is qualitatively different from what we are experiencing from afar, not knowing the fate of our loved ones. feeling helpless to do anything. If I were there, perhaps my skills would be useful, here I feel powerless. I’m deeply saddened for everyone’s loss. Words can’t express.
    My heart goes out to everyone.
    Fritz.

    Christine (N. Ireland) // April 9th, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    Users,
    Courtesy of the Tricali and Algisa team some photographs of Villa Sant’Angelo and Fossa have been made available. These might not be 100% accurate due to the aftershocks but it might provide someone with information. I hope this helps people in some way.

    This is the link;

    Hey there. I’m from Brasil and I’m trying to find out if my italian friend, Luciano Pandola, and his family are ok. I can’t contact them from e-mail or cell phone…he lives (lived) in L’aquila, Via del falco 19. Can anyone help me? Thank you so much.

    Amazed that Tricali was able to do anything correctly. Stay away from this organisation of you re thinking of buying a house in Italy.

    MIPC : Can we please refrain from losing the content of this blog posting. Which is exclusively about the Earthquake and offering genuine help to people.

    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Elizabeth, you may want to call the Red Cross because San Pio is right next to Castelnuovo, which was badly damaged. MIPC posted info at the top of the page on how to contact survivors or request victim names…

    Irma Bullock Di Croce // April 9th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    I have relatives in Ortona Dei Marsi – DiCroce’s and DiChristophero. Does anyone have any info on that area?

  155. 157
    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    Irma: Ortona Dei Marsi is far south near my village of Pratola Peligna, and there is no significant damage there, they only got a shake. I can’t confirm, but since Pratola is fine, I assume Ortona is too.

  156. 158
    joe // April 9th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Fernanda: Call the Red Cross. The website is posted at the top. You can give them the names of your people and they will check if they are alive, dead or missing. Hopefully they are alive, lets all hope.

  157. 159
    Peggy // April 9th, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    This has a list of names from the victims of the earthquake. It’s in Italian, but basically say’s this is what they have so far it is incomplete and will be updated.

    Sorry about the Link mistake. I looked afterward and saw no link and we can’t correct our comments here after we post…I would feel uncomfortable as an Admin because My information is just taken from researching on the computer, and plus I don’t have a lot of time since I work a 3am to 1 Pm shift. Thank you MIPC for the offer though. Hope the list helps. Thank Peggy for finding it!

    The victims, here’s the partial list
    The names of persons hitherto recognized died in the earthquake that struck L’Aquila. The list is still incomplete and will be updated according to official data provided by the Civil Protection.

    According to the site, these are people from L’ Aquila proper..

  162. 164
    joe // April 10th, 2009 at 12:30 am

    I’m so sorry…the translator mixed up the names and translated them…here’s the updated list with the correct names. Ignore the last list…

    We have family in San Demetrio ne’Vestini (Cardabello) which is very close to Onna and only a few minutes from Laquila. Was there significant damage to the village? I saw only 8 people missing there and that was all. Were there deaths? We can’t get a hold of family and friends. Anyone hear any info?

    gillian bonham // April 10th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    please please, does anybody know how the village of Carapelle Calvisio fared in the earthquake, I am desperate to know if the villagers and my house are okay.

  170. 172
    Fossa Homeowner // April 10th, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    Maria, We heard from a friend in San Demetrio, I don’t think it has been badly affected, he had a crack in his ceiling. Here is part of an email that he sent to another friend

    ‘thankfully we do have electric, but no gas for cooking. I start writing and there goes another shock… I’ve filmed with some miniDV in S. Demetrio, but have had difficulty going out these past days (they discourage traffic to let the rescuers come in) but I might try again this afternoon. Yes we’re trying to make a game of this for our little one, you can imagine how frightened she gets when the house shakes, but didn’t cry one time, felt kind of proud of that!
    I don’t think there will be any mail delivery here for quite some time, I’m still waiting for business supplies and I’m wondering if I’ll ever get them now.’

    Might give you an idea of how it is to be anywhere near L’Aquila at the moment, but at least S. Demetrio seems to have avoided the worst.

    Ginny // April 11th, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Gillian, according to a Carapelle Calvisio website, there was damage and there are injuries, but no victims. There are photos of the damage posted, and I was able to translate the Italian text using Google translate. http://www.prolococarapelle.it/it/image/tid/10

  172. 174
    gillian bonham // April 12th, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Thanks for that Ginny, I cannot see our house in any of the pictures, and I am relieved that the villagers seemed have missed the worst of the earthquake, but it so frustrating that the estate agents that we purchased the house from have not even bothered to let me know what is going on, but thanks for your help.
    We were supposed to be visiting in May but due to work committments, and the way things are in England at the moment, we cannot get the time off work.

    Tom Doherty // April 13th, 2009 at 7:45 pm

    Hi Gillian, I was talking to a friend of mine in the village last night. At present everybody is staying in the Gliura beside the cemetry. I have a house in Via del Archi in carapelle and his house is at the back of mine. As of Monday morning most of the houses int he centre were relatively untouched by the earthquake

  174. 176
    gillian bonham // April 16th, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    Hi Tom, thanks for the comment. I have heard about the photographer that bought a house in Carapelle, but we must keep missing each other. Daniellas father is very proud of the dvd you made of your photographs. Our house is in Via Porta Paciarella, and I have some sketchy news from the lady who used to own the house, who contacted the mayor, and what I can understand, our house seems to be okay from the outside. When are you visiting next? Gill.

    I believe the structural engineer is visiting local villages in the area at the moment.

    I too appreciate the service provided by this blog. It has been the only source of details concerning Villa San Angelo that I have found. My sympathy goes out to all of you who have lost dear family, friends, and homes in this earthquake.

    On Thursday, 9 April, I looked at the photos on box.net suggested by Christine. However, when I went back the next day they had been removed. Does anyone know where/how I can obtain some of these. My grandfather and his siblings came to America from VSA.

    Hi Gillian, there are some pictures of the damage caused to the village ( Carapelle ) on the pro loco site. My wife Frances is flying out to Italy on Wednesday morning and hopes to be in the Village by Wed lunchtime. I will be in Carapelle on May 13th May for a week and hopefully will be allowed to stay in the house at that stage. At present there is no indication as to when the residents will be allowed back into their homes. Hopefully we will meet up soon.

    Hi Tom, we were supposed to be going to Carapelle on the 6th May, but unfortunately we have had to cancel our trip because my partner cannot get the time off from work, but we would have missed each other again, because we were due to fly home on the 13th. We have now got to wait until Sept 16th to go.
    I have seen the pics on the pro loco site and two of them show our house, from what I can see the roof and the walls are intact, but who knows whether there is any damage inside. Our estate agents have got our spare keys and are supposed to be checking the house out when they can get up there. Speak to you soon, Gill.

    Hi Gillian, hopefully everything will be ok, its a good sign that there is no exterior damage. I have no news on when the residents will be allowed back into their homes, but the aftershocks seem to be lessening and moving up toward Aquilano

    Hi
    does anyone know how the village of Assergi coped with the earthquake and after shocks, it’s next door to Paganica?

    Marc,
    On Villa Sant’Angelo. Scottish friends called us Sunday morning to say that they had just arrived back from the village.
    The people of the village are still in tents and access is only permitted under police escort.
    I believe a government official was to be present Monday in the village to assess the damage and what property will have to be demolished due to it being unsafe. As yet we have no results of this.
    My family are planning to travel there at the end of April and if you have had no information before that time I will ask them to gather as much information as possible for you.

    Hi Tom, any news from your wife yet on the condition of the village and the residents? I have heard nothing from the estate agents yet, so I presume they have not been up to Carapelle yet. Gill.

    Hi Gillian, Tom’s wife, Frances here, I returned from Abruzzo yesterday. Went to the village of Carapelle and met with locals, who are staying in la Gliura, all 70 inhabitants living under the one roof. I saw some of the damage to the village, though some areas are inaccesible due to the damage caused by the earthquake. As one approaches the village from the Capestrano side there appears to be most damage to the left of the church which was being renovated, whole buildings have collapsed. Also, there appears to be some damage around the little piazza where the mexican feast was being held, around Via Oberdan. Other than that damage caused seemed to be random, occurring in no particular or place. However, damage caused wasn’t as widespread as I had expected, thankfully and the locals appeared to be in good spirits. I stayed in hotel in Popoli and experienced a tremor on Thursday night which was a scary experience, measured 2.7 magnitude so I can only imagine what the locals must have felt when the big one hit. I hope I have been of some help to you. Have you been able to get in contact with your estate agent and are they a local agency?
    Frances Doherty

    Hi Frances, thanks for the message. We have not been able to contact the estate agents that have our keys, it is the usual story they have your money and then everything else is an afterthought. I am glad the villagers are in good spirits. Is Daniellas store still open or has she had to close? That must be affecting her trade and income. Is your house okay? From the pics on the Carapelle website, we can only see our house from a distance, but it looks intact. Speak to you both soon, Gill.

    Hi Ginny, The shop is open for business from 10am to 12pm each day. I met Daniella in La Gliura and she seemed to be in good spirits. Our house is fine just a superficial crack in one room and various foodstuffs scatterred around the floor, all minor ,Please feel free to use our e-mail address tomdohertyphotography@gmail.com
