A strong earthquake struck early Sunday in northern Italy, killing at least three people and knocking down a church bell in the region, authorities said.
Two people were killed in a ceramic factory in Sant'Agostino di Ferrara, and one person died when a workshed collapsed in Ponte Rodoni di Bondeno, according to Elisabetta Maffani, spokeswoman for Italy's civil protection agency.
The 6.0-magnitude quake occurred just after 4 a.m. (10 p.m. ET Saturday), 4 kilometers (2.4 miles) outside Camposanto, northwest of Bologna, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The Italian civil protection agency said it anticipates more injuries as rescue workers make their way to remote villages in the mountainous area.FULL STORY
