Interesting, as nothing is yet showing up on the USGS: …usgs.gov/earthquakes/…Europe.php

And obviously, felt nothing up here in Tuscany.

3.5 is a piddling earthquake. Here's an article about it, which you can run through translate.google.com .

leggo.it/news/…187475.shtml

Its epicenter was in the Castelli Romani area, which is often affected by slight volcanic activity far underground. There is no reported damage.

We used to have this level of quakes all the time when I lived in L.A. - rarely ever felt them; only if it was a jolt and even then, barely.

Thankfully, it is nothing serious and hope it stays that way.

I live on the San Andreas fault where 3.5 is not a keeper. But we have strictly enforced seismic building and retrofitting codes. And there are no mideavil or ancient structures in the neighborhood.

This size is hardly felt and amounts to nothing!
