Sadly the earthquake set off an avalanche.
If you follow Suspicious0bservers you may have heard of Earth Spots which posits a link between storms and earthquakes, which may have some merit:
When I saw news today of another earthquake in Central Italy this morning, I recalled yesterday’s news of pummelling snowfall also in Central Italy (see image at top of page).
It’s a truly horrible situation and no wonder the Mayor feels somewhat cursedYahoo

The BBC reports the death toll as at least 250. Utterly devastating for this small community.
“At least 120 people have been killed and 368 injured in an earthquake that hit a mountainous area of central Italy, PM Matteo Renzi has said.”
BBC now reporting at least 60 dead. Very sad.
