Yesterday at about 4.00pm there was a little earthquake in Bagni di Lucca. The epicentre was not far away, near Castelnuovo in the Garfagnana.
This was my first experience with an earthquake and it felt as though a large truck had hit the house. There was a loud noise and the floor shook for a couple of seconds.
I went outside to see if I could see anything, to find others out in the square as well. There was no truck and no damage.
I was genuinely frightened…and I don’t scare easily. I can’t imagine how terrible a serious earthquake would be.
There are no reports of damage today and life goes on as normal…I think I might get earthquake insurance.
