Major earthquake in central Italy.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/26/europe/italy-earthquake/index.html



Campi, Italy (CNN) Two powerful earthquakes Wednesday struck central Italy about 50 miles north of the site of a deadly August quake that killed nearly 300 people, the US Geological Survey said.

The second quake -- with a magnitude of 6.1 -- was 3.2 kilometers (2 miles) north of Visso and 58 km (36 miles) from Perugia, the USGS reported.

Following on from this, it has destroyed a six-century church and was felt in Rome.

A blessing? Yes that more people were not hurt and Rome antiquities not destroyed. But def not a blessing for all the others affected. Poor Italy!!

I think TAR finally broke the "disaster curse" and gave us a blessing..... as already reported in the TAR Media thread this past July:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/chicagoinc/ct-the-amazing-race-filming-in-chicago-20160703-story.html

After visiting Chicago in TAR29, TAR has single handedly broken the 108 year drought and caused the Chicago Cubs to win the World Series this year.   :wohoo:

But don't take my word for it, here's a pic:
