Earthquake rattles Milan skyscrapers

A MODERATELY strong earthquake has rattled much of north-central Italy, including Milan skyscrapers, but authorities say first reports indicate there are no injuries or major damage.

Italy's National Institute of Geology said the earthquake had a magnitude of 4.8 and struck shortly before 4pm yesterday.

Institute official Alberto Michelini told Sky TG24 TV the quake's epicentre was 30km north of Viareggio, a Tuscan sea resort, and that the earthquake was felt most in the regions of Tuscany and Emiilia Romagna.

People in Milan skyscrapers and others in the Tuscan capital of Florence and in Bologna reported feeling the quake.
