EARTHQUAKE

More in Italy Quake Feared Dead

The search may be over for survivors of this week's earthquake in central Italy. The last survivor, a 20-year-old woman, was pulled from beneath the rubble on Tuesday. The earthquake left 291 people dead and 40,000 homeless, but noises from beneath the rubble have indicated that there are still more people stuck. But the scent has begun to fade as workers searched in vain today in L’Aquila, and it is feared that those stuck beneath the ruined city are now dead. But workers have still not given up hope: “We dug all night and now we just have to wait,” one official said. “We can hear almost nothing now.”
