A strong earthquake has hit Rome, shaking centuries old buildings in the Italian capital on Wednesday night.

On August 24, an earthquake of 6.2 magnitude toppled buildings in villages in the mountainous region of Rome.,

Today’s tremor came two months after a quake in central Italy that left nearly 300 people killed.
The US Geological Survey said the earthquake measured 5.6 on the Richter scale but that was later revised to 5.4.
