There will be thunderstorms which will shake cities, earthquakes which will swallow up countries. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
More Doom for Italy. With the blood of St. Januarius failing to liquefy, and the latest Pope telegram of condolences sent and not to mention the dread breastfeeding prophecy for 2017 leads to this:

From the LOCAL:

What we know so far:
- The first three quakes came within one hour, at 10:25, 11:14 and 11:25 on Wednesday morning, each with a magnitude of above 5.  
- A fourth major tremor was reported at around 14:33, with a magnitude estimated at 5.3.

Yet another major quake, 14:38: After a calmer few hours, a fourth quake of a magnitude above 5.0 has been reported in the central Italian region. According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), it had a magnitude of 5.3, and its epicentre was again in Montereale in the l'Aquila province. Other towns 10km or closer to the epicentre were Capitignano, Campotosto, Amatrice and Cagnano Amiterno, but the tremors were also felt strongly in Rome.

Italy PM speaks from Germany, 13:29: The Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni is now giving a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. The main theme of the conference is how Italy and Germany see the future of Europe, but Gentiloni began by speaking about the earthquake this morning, which he said he was monitoring "minute by minute". "Fortunately there are no reports of casualties, however it is a situation which causes alarm for the population, which was already severely affected by the earthquakes last year," said Gentiloni.

Avalanche fears in the Marche, 13:00: In the mountainous Marche region, the Civil Protection Agency has issued an avalanche warning due to the combination of heavy snow and ongoing tremors.

More collapses reported, 12:38: Parts of buildings in Campotosto and Poggia Cancelli have collapsed, along with farm buildings in Grisciano, Accumoli, Rai News reports.

Quake magnitudes revised, 12:32: The Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (Ingv) has revised its estimates of the morning's earthquakes. According to the new figures, the first quake was measured at 5.1, the second 5.4 and the third at 5.3. Earlier estimates had put the magnitude of the first two quakes at 5.4 and 5.7.

Local mayors speak to media, 12:28: Mayors from some of the towns affected by the earthquakes have been speaking to Italian press. The mayor of Montereale, Massimiliano Giorgi, said on RaiNews24 that for the moment, "there has been some damage, but no major collapses and there are no victims". Sergio Pirozzi, mayor of Amatrice, said his town was experiencing the worst snow in more than 50 years. "People can't get out because there is up to two metres of snow," he told Rai reporters. "We have been awake all night trying to resolve the problem."

Amatrice’s bell tower has completely collapsed, 12:23: According to a report in local paper Rieti Life, the bell tower of Amatrice is completely destroyed after Wednesday’s tremors. The 13th-century civic tower was damaged but left standing by the August quake, but was significantly damaged after later tremors in the region last October. Now, Rieti Life says the tower is destroyed “once and for all”.

Evacuations in Rome, 11.52: Office workers have been evacuated in Rome, together with students at local schools and universities.
