12,000 PERSONS ARE KILLED, 20,000
INJURED, IN TERRIFIC EARTHQUAKE
THAT ROCKS THE HEART OF ITALY
Famed Colonnade in St. Peter's
Square at Rome Sinks Four
Feet-Statues Fall, Churches
Collapse, Towns and Villages i
Rome, Jan. l.'t. Italy has again been visited by an earth
quake of great extent, which, according to the latest advices,
has destroyed towns and villages and resulted in the death of
12.000 persons and injury to possibly 20.000 more.
The shock was the strongest that Rome has felt in more
than a hundred years. The town of Avezzano. in the Abruzzi
department, 6.'l miles east of Rome, has been levelled to the
ground; here 8,000 persons are reported to have been killed.
In many small towns surrounding Rome, buildings were par
tially wrecked, while at Naples a panic occurred and houses
fell at Caserta. a short distance to the east.
SHOCK EXTENDS MORE THAN .500 MILES.
From below Naples in the south to Ferara in the north, a
distance of more than .'500 miles, and across almost the width
of the country the undulatory movement continued for a con
siderable period. In Rome it was thought at first that two
shocks had occurred, but the seismographic instruments in the
observatories showed that there was only one, which, begin
ning at 7:55 o'clock in the morning, lasted from 22 to .'50
In the capital itself, so far as is known, there was no loss
.)f life, but a great deal of damage was done, churches and
statues suffering most.
PANIC IN CITY OF ROME.
For a time the people were stricken with fear and there
was a veritable panic in the hospitals, monasteries and con
vents. The buildings on both sides of the Porta Del Popolo,
the north entrance to Rome, threatened to fall, and the eagle
decorating the gate crashed to the ground. The obelisk in St.
Peter's square was shaken and badly damaged, while the
statue of St. John Lateran and the statues of the Apostles
surmounting the Basilica are in danger ot collapsing. The
famous colonnade decorating St. Peter's square was lowered
four feet, while the adjacent house, once occupied by the sisters
of Pope Pius X, was badly cracked.
