Minor 4.8 Earthquake Shakes Northeastern Italy Near Florence with No Reported Damage Yet

Early on Monday, parts of Tuscany experienced a 4.8-magnitude earthquake, as confirmed by geologists and firefighters. Fortunately, there have been no immediate reports of any damage or injuries.

The earthquake’s epicenter was located in the vicinity of Marradi, northeast of Florence. It occurred at 5:10 a.m., following a series of smaller tremors, as reported by Italy’s Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology.

It’s worth noting that this region is considered to be at a high risk for earthquakes, with a significant historical event being the 1919 earthquake in Mugello, which remains one of the most powerful earthquakes to have struck Italy during the 20th century.

Italy’s fire rescue team received some concerned calls from residents, but as of now, there have been no reports of any damages or injuries.
