Earthquake strikes central Italy

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake has struck central Italy, with reports saying some buildings had collapsed.

The quake hit at 03:36 (01:36 GMT), 76 km (47 miles) southeast of the city of Perugia, at the very shallow depth of 10km (six miles), the USGS said.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

However the USGS predicted these could be significant, based on data from previous quakes.
