Thinking of Italy after earthquake

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Italian region of Abruzzo and the small town of LAquila where an earthquake hit in the pre-dawn hours early Monday morning 60 miles east of Rome. The latest death toll of people killed is 235, with the town of L’Aquila the hardest hit. An estimated 50,000 are now homeless. In response to inquiries, Italian authorities have told the United States that they did not need rescue teams. The United States is donating $50,000 in emergency aid to Italy to assist. It is being reported that the earthquake damage was in the mountainous region of Abruzzo, and that all other areas of Italy were uneffected from a tourist standpoiint.
