This is the worst human tragedy in Europe that I can remember in my lifetime.
We need to remember that this is punishment from God for Italy allowing all of these monkeys from Africa to flood Europe.
Civil protection officials have revised down the death toll from the earthquake in central Italy to 241 after one of the hard-hit areas adjusted its figures.
Operations chief Immacolata Postiglione said the toll was lowered from the 247 she had reported earlier Thursday due to a revision from the area of Arquata in Le Marche region.
The vast majority of the victims, 195, are from Amatrice and Accumuli in the Lazio region closer to Rome.
She stressed that the number remains provisional and that the search continues.
Here’s a touchingly sad tale from the tragedy.
An eight-year-old girl sacrificed her own life by throwing herself on top of her younger sister as the rubble from Italy’s devastating earthquake encased them.
In one of the most remarkable stories of courage to emerge from the catastrophic 6.2-magnitude quake that struck central Italy on Wednesday, the two girls were found buried together in the rubble of their holiday home in the village of Pescara del Tronto but only one of them survived.
Distraught grandmother Angela Cafini wept as she recalled how her four-year-old grand daughter escaped with barely a scratch thanks to her older sister who lay on top of her to protect her as the house collapsed around them.
‘Giulia died saving her sister. She lay on top of her. That is the only reason she is alive. I am told she has no injuries and that is the only explanation for that,’ Ms Cafini said.
The village has been virtually wiped from the map with almost every building destroyed.
The astonishing tale of heroism emerged as the death toll from the earthquake rose to 247.
Very, very sad.
But it isn’t nearly as sad as Italy’s role in pushing to completely abolish the European people from the face of the earth by using their navy to go pick-up Africans from Libyan waters and bring them to Europe, for refusing to turn the boats around.
