CBS Radio News correspondent Anna Matranga reports that some schools in Rome were evacuated, according to Italian media.
The first quake was a Magnitude 5.3, the middle one measured 5.7 and the third 5.3, according to the USGS. They all struck within one hour.
Some communities close to the epicentre were already isolated due to snowfall when the quakes struck.
SKY Italia News reported that fire brigades were already close to the areas hit by the tremors, and aid workers were there, too, but they were having some problems getting around due to the inclement weather.
I hope that there are no serious injuries, especially in the snowbound areas.
Also hope that any CAF members in Italy stay safe.
