Central Italy reconstruction watch
Thanks to OpenStreetMap contributors, has been possible to build a crowdsourced map of damaged towns and villages in the Apennine mountains, after the devastating series of earthquakes that hit central Italy betwen August and November 2016.
People in the worst-affected areas of Umbria, Marche, Lazio and Abruzzo are now facing what is likely to be a long and difficult struggle to rebuild homes and historic buildings, without lose their cultural heritage.
Osservatorio sulla ricostruzione in centro Italia
Grazie al contributo della comunità di OpenStreetMap, è stato possibile costruire una mappa crowdsourced delle città e dei paesi appenninici, danneggiati dopo la devastante serie di terremoti che hanno colpito l'Italia centrale tra agosto e novembre 2016.
Le popolazioni nelle aree più colpite di Umbria, Marche, Lazio e Abruzzo sono ora di fronte a quella che sarà probabilmente una sfida lunga e difficile per ricostruire le case e gli edifici storici, senza che il loro patrimonio culturale vada perduto.
Earthquakes in central Italy
In the first hours of 24th August 2016 an earthquake with magnitude 6.0 (M6.2 measured by the USGS), occurred in the centre of Italy involving a very large territory including several Regions (Lazio, Abruzzo, Umbria) and Municipalities. After the main shock several others occurred in the areas producing casualties and damages on structures and infrastructures.
On the afternoon of the 26th of October a new earthquake, with magnitude 5.4 (M5.5 measured by the USGS), has shocked the central Italy with the epicenter close to the area already affected by the earthquake on the 24th of August. A second quake happened in the same area with a magnitude of 5.9 (M6.1 measured by the USGS).
