Deadly Italian Earthquakes · June 01, 2012
Merely nine days after an intense and deadly earthquake rattled northern Italy, killing seven, two more struck in the same region…, killing at least another 15 people…
The first quake, a 5.8 magnitude, struck the Emilia-Romagna region around 9 am, and the second, a 5.6 tremor struck around noon. Both quakes follow an earlier May 20 quake of 6.0 which struck the area around Bologna.
“Factories, churches and warehouses reportedly collapsed, with the cities of Modena, Brescia and Milan among the most affected.” Some people were killed by falling buildings and some were trapped under the rubble. Massive communication and transportation problems complicated rescue and relief efforts.
“This is terror,” said a local mayor. “Everyone is on the street asking why? I’m asking that too.”
“Men in responsible positions… will point to calamities on land and sea—to the storms of wind, the floods, the earthquakes, the destruction by fire—as judgments indicating God’s displeasure because Sunday is not sacredly observed. These calamities will increase more and more, one disaster will follow close upon the heels of another; and those who make void the law of God will point to the few who are keeping the Sabbath of the fourth commandment as the ones who are bringing wrath upon the world. This falsehood is Satan’s device that he may ensnare the unwary.” Southern Watchman, June 28, 1904.
