Rome, Dec. 30. - The three pro. lnces of Cosensa, Catansaro and Reg. gio di Calabria, comprising the do. partmant of Calabria, which forms the routhwestern extremity of Italy, I or "the toe of the boot." were devas- . . tated yesterday by an earthquake, the I far-reaching effects of which were felt almost throughout the entire country. ( The town of Messina, in Sicily, was ( partially destroyed and Catania was C inundated. Ir Mersina hundreds of houses have fallen and thousands of 7 persons have been killed. Owing. c however, to the fact that telegraphic s G and telephonic comnmunlcations were almost completely destroyed, it is Im. e possible to obtain even an approxi. t mate Idea of the vast damage done. A Havoc Is Great. The fate of entire regions within the zone of the earthquake. is on known, but reports received here up k to a late hour indicate that the havoc I has been great and the destruction to t life and property more terrible than c Italy has experienced in many years. ii . The uncertainty of the situation for t many thousands has filled all Italians h I with the deepest distress, for they s still have fear that the day may come d when that part of the country, which 1 seems to have been most blessed by o nature, Ill be destroyed by the blind a forces of that same nature which a nearly nineteen centuries ago over i I whelmed Pompeii and Herculaneum. Many Vessels Are Sunk. t' All reports show that the present ti catastrophe embraces a larger area c than the earthquake in 1905. The Il tidal wave which followed the earth I shocks on the eastern coast of Sicily A sunk vessels and Inundated the lower I part of Catania It is known that a I number of people were killed at that place, but the rushing waters carried I everything before thena and caused P etch an indescribable confusion that of it will be impossible for some time to of estimate the damage and the lives bi lost. The Italian government proceeded Ii energetically to relieve the wide. it spread distress, concentrating at the ci points of greatest need troops and en. fit gineers. Ih Messina Suffers Most. The city of Messina has suffered probably more than any other place. the latest Information, coming indl reetly from that quarter, stating that two-thirds of the town was destroyed and several thousand persons killed. Not only did Catania suffer from the effects of a tidal wave, but a similar body of water Inundated the handsome streets of Messina, which flank the harbor, covering them with a thick layer of mud, which rendered more discult the succoring of the wounded, many of whom could be seen lying under the wreckage. It is reported that the villages of- Fare and Ganasrri, adjoining ideasins,1 have disappeared. The effects of the earthquake were aggravated by fire through an explosion of gas, the arames of which swept along several of the streets, adding terror upon ter ror. Pill Air With Lamentations. In Calabria the region around Mon te Leona was most affected. The vil lage of Stefanaconi, the inhabitants of which number 2.300, was practical ly destroyed. Only fve persons were killed, but many were Injured. Extraordinary scenes are reported at Catania. Following a violent earth shock at 5:20 a. m. the sea rose in a tremendous wave, which wrecked many smacks. It then suddenly re tired from the shore and returned as quickly, causing further great dam a age and wreckage, Although a terrific rain storm pre- a vailed. thousands of people abandon- - ed their homes and illed the air with lamentations and prayers.
