Quake Damages Hotel On Italian Island In Ischia

Amateur picture

Amateur picture uploaded to the Internet on Tuesday (August 22) showed damage to a hotel after an earthquake hit the tourist-packed Italian holiday island of Ischia on Monday night (August 21).

The video showed cracks in the walls and fallen bricks at Hotel Terme Vinetum, near the town of Casamicciola, following the earthquake which has so far killed at least two people and injured dozens more.

Television images showed about six buildings in Casamicciola including a church had collapsed in the quake, which hit at 8:57 p.m. (1857 GMT).

Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology put the magnitude of Monday’s quake at 4.0, revising it up from an initial 3.6, but both the U.S. Geological Survey and the European quake agency estimated the magnitude at 4.3
