Italian earthquake causes avalanche which buries hotel

Post  Lamplighter on Thu Jan 19, 2017 8:53 am

Abruzzo avalanche hotel: 30 feared dead after Italian spa resort buried beneath tonnes of snow after earthquake.

Emergency crews are working tirelessly to reach people trapped in the Hotel Rigopiano in earthquake-hit Pescara

Up to 30 people are feared dead dead after an Italian hotel was covered by an avalanche following an earthquake.

The snowslide covered cars, farm animals and part of Hotel Rigopiano in Abruzzo, east of Rome, as it violently surged down a mountainside yesterday.

Let's hope the death toll isn't as bad as feared, LL. And there have been a worrying number of quakes in Italy recently.

The center of Italy is famous, or should that be infamous, for earthquakes. LL

I don't recall them coming so close together - or maybe they always have done, and I simply don't remember?

Don't know, but as the weather in Europe is very bad at present, maybe that has ascerbated the problem as the snow has been very heavy in that area. LL

The weather's wierd, LL. I gather it's pretty cold in SE England, but here, it's about 6c, which is tolerable for January. It's still very damp and muddy, though.

Weird is a mild description, bonny. I haven't seen such a freezing January here since we had a stinker 8 years ago. Overnight temp for the last 10 days averaged -10C, daytime as low as -6C. Bl**dy snow is icing overnight, thawing a bit daytime, then icing again. LL

Oh Lord! I hope you're not trying to go anywhere in such weather - frozen snow just about guarantees broken bones.

Damp and mud is just messy.....

I made it to the gates yesterday as it's 5 days since I last checked the post.   It took me ages, slower than a geriatric snail; I won't be doing that again until maybe the weekend if the ice has retreated.   No new snow forecast so hopefully things will improve   LL

More people are being found alive, Lily...

Eight people - including two young girls - have been rescued from an Italian hotel buried in an avalanche on Wednesday, according to rescuers.

Police and fire crews say there are indications that there are other survivors under the rubble.

Italian firefighter Giuseppe Romano said: "Other people have responded to our signals."

Those already rescued were found in the kitchen area of the Hotel Rigopiano and police say the discovery has given the rescue effort a massive boost.

They had been trapped in the hotel for more than 40 hours.

Helicopters were called to ferry the survivors to hospital once they were dug out.
