Italian hillside town in ruins after quake

NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION).

Drone video filmed on Thursday morning shows the almost complete devastation of the hillside town of Pescara del Tronto in central Italy.

The small community is usually home to 135 inhabitants but numbers swell in the summer months as tourists arrive to make the most of the fresh mountain air in the central Marche region.

At least 10 people are believed to have died in the village, buried under rubble as the 6.2 magnitude quake struck in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The few rescue workers who have made it into the town struggled up the steep hillside over fallen debris.

Most of the digging out of survivors has been conducted by its inhabitants as its secluded location made it difficult for rescue services to reach.

The earthquake caused damage in three regions – Umbria, Lazio and Marche.
