Praying for Italy

The death toll from an earthquake in central Italy has risen to at least 120, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said, according to national news agency ANSA.  The shallow, 6.2-magnitude earthquake devastated towns early Wednesday, placing rescuers in a desperate race against time to pull survivors from the rubble.  More than 1,000 people were displaced by the quake, the civil protection agency said.

Very sad.
