Rescue workers continue search after Italy quake


Emergency workers on Saturday (August 27) continued to search and monitor many tiny villages that dot the valley around the town of Amatrice which was leveled by Wednesday’s (August 24) earthquake.

Voted one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, Amatrice was hammered by the calamity, with almost every house in the historic center destroyed and even the school – which was meant to have been earthquake proofed – torn apart.

Rescuers kept searching through the rubble of the worst hit town, Amatrice, although they acknowledged they had little hope of finding any more survivors from Italy’s worst earthquake in seven years.

Nine more bodies were recovered from the town on Saturday, including three corpses that were pulled overnight from the crumpled Hotel Roma, bringing the death toll in Amatrice alone to 230 residents and tourists.
