Not less than 37 people have been killed and many injured in Italy after an earthquake hit Accumoli and Amatrice towns.

This was confirmed by Fabio Curcio, head of Italy’s Civil Protection  Department on Wednesday morning,  Associated Press (AP) reports.
According to reports, the two towns of  Accumoli and Amatrice were struck around 3;36 a.m local time when most residents were already asleep.
The mayor of Amatrice re-affirmed that a large portion of that town had been destroyed and that residents had been buried under the rubble of collapsed homes and buildings.
The Civil Protection Department labeled the earthquake as “severe,” as reports of power and communications outages and ruptured gas lines added to the difficulties facing emergency responders.
ANSA reports that the quake was felt across four regions of central Italy: Lazio, Umbria, Abruzzo and Marche.
