Earthquakes all the time

The epicenter is the same as before, in Emilia near the city of Modena. More buildings crumbled and it seems there are some casualties.
In Italy we have a relatively efficient emergency national organization for these events but we have also some problems that we cannot overcome. For instance there are very few recent and shake resistant buildings, many are centuries old many and the others were built cheaply. And on average we keep them as "precious" and keep using them despite they are totally unsafe. Then as Nation we are on the limit of bankrupt so we don't have resources to spend for a crisis let aside the idea of totally redo buildings across the Nation.
