ROME, August 24. /TASS/. The death toll in the devastating earthquake that hit central Italy on Wednesday has risen to 63, ANSA news agency reported.
The agency cites its own sources from the disaster area. The Italian civil protection department has given no updates on the death toll. Previous reports said the quake left at least 38 people dead.
The 6.0-magnitude quake was followed by multiple aftershocks in the early hours of Wednesday devastating a number of mountainous towns and villages, including Amatrice, Pescara del Tronto and Accumoli where thousands were left homeless.
The earthquake’s epicenter was just four kilometers below the surface of the earth.
The Italian Defense Ministry has sent military units to the quake-stricken areas but the rescue operation is hampered by these regions’ remoteness and difficult terrain.
According to forecasts by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), subsequent economic damage could be significant and the death toll could rise to 1,000.
