Thousands of people in central Italy have spent the night in cars, tents and temporary shelters following the fourth earthquake in the area in three months.
The 6.6-magnitude quake – Italy’s strongest in decades – struck close to the region where nearly 300 people were killed by a quake in august.
This time no-one appears to have died in the tremor near the town of Norcia, but about 20 people were injured
Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is chairing a cabinet meeting to discuss emergency reconstruction efforts.
Tremors from the latest earthquake were felt in the Capital Rome, where the metro system was shut down but is now reopening.
