Over 120 people have been killed by a deadly earthquake and dozens more missing after a powerful 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck central Italy, reducing the ancient towns to rubble.
European Mediterranean Seismological Centre said that the epicentre was northeast of Rome, near Norcia in Umbria, while the US Geological Survey (USGS) put the magnitude at 6.2.
Many have said that it was so strong that the bed was walking across the room by itself with us on it.
Once it was dawn, emergency services and residents scrambled to rescue trapped people under the ruins of collapsed old buildings, digging with bare hands and with anything they can find.
Many are still trapped as you can hear screams from beneath the rubbles.
