New earthquake hits Italy near Ferrari headquarters image

A new earthquake has struck northern Italy close to the Ferrari headquarters.

The temblor, which came after one of a similar magnitude killed seven people on May 20, hit the province of Modena at 9 a.m. local time, the Civil Protection Agency said on its website.

The prefecture of Modena reports that buildings collapsed in the areas hit hardest by the quake – Medowie, Mirandola, Finale Emilia – and that there are people still trapped underneath the rubble. The powerful earthquake that hit northern Italy has also affected train services.

Schools were evacuated across the Emilia Romagna region, but also in Florence in Tuscany. A hospital was reportedly evacuated in Modena and train services at Bologna were delayed for checks to the lines.

Seven people were killed when a magnitude 6.0 quake struck the same region in the early morning of May 20.

Four of the victims were working overnight shifts in factories that collapsed; the other three died of heart conditions or other illnesses brought on by fear.
