Earthquake and Tsunami in Greenland

A tidal wave struck a settlement on the northwest coast of Greenland late on Saturday. As a result of an earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter Scale, a tsunami-like wave and flooding struck a remote hamlet about 30 km from the village of Nuugaatsiaq in Greenland two days ago. The authorities are now busy evacuating the inhabitants, and so far 39 out of the village’s estimated 100 residents have been taken to Uummanaq. Reports indicate there have been a number of people killed, but so far the police have not released any casualty figures.

An earthquake devastated a string of mountainous towns over a swathe of central Italy early on Wednesday, trapping residents under hills of rubble, with at least 38 people believed killed and many missing. The quake struck in the early hours of the morning when most people were asleep, razing homes and buckling roads in a cluster of towns and villages some 140km east of Rome. The emergency services released an aerial photograph showing whole areas of the town of Amatrice flattened, while debris filled the streets of nearby Accumoli. “Now that daylight has come, we see that the situation is even more dreadful than we feared, with buildings collapsed, people trapped under the rubble and no sound of life,” said Accumoli mayor Stefano Petrucci. Wide cracks appeared like open wounds on the buildings that were still standing. “Three quarters of the town is not there anymore,” Amatrice mayor Sergio Pirozzi told state broadcaster RAI. “The aim now is to save as many lives as possible. There are voices under the rubble, we have to save the people there.” The earthquake caused damage to towns in three regions, Umbria, Lazio and Marche.
