Northern Italy Stuck Again by Another Big Earthquake

An earthquake was felt through much of northern Italy on Tuesday, just over a week after a tremor had struck the region killing several people and destroying and damaging hundreds of buildings.

The latest earthquake caused more buildings to collapse in the areas already affected by the previous quake, where thousands are still sleeping outdoors in tents.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter of Tuesday's 5.8 magnitude earthquake, which struck at depth of 9.6 km (6 miles), was less than 30 km (19 miles) from Modena, not far from where the magnitude 6 earthquake struck just over a week ago.
