Lots of things in my street, it's a rather long one. One of the strangest is a Seventh-day Adventist church. There aren't a lot of those in Italy...

I didn't want Chelsea to win. They don't play a nice and spectacular football, but they just care about the result (Italian teams are similar). In the semifinal with Barcelona they had this tactic:



Now they were almost the same. Bayern was attacking the entire game. Chelsea also had incredible luck! They got a goal in '83 minute, but managed to equal in '88 minute. They had a penatly against, but Cech managed to defend it. At the penalty shootout they missed the first one, but they eventually managed to win the game. They are incredibly lucky!

At least Abramovic is happy

An earthquake woke me this night, with an epicenter 300 km away:

It woke me up too, I was a little closer. Sadly 4-5 deaths are reported, and several medieval towers and churches collapsed.

On the other side of my street, just in front of my livingroom window is an abandoned many years ago speedway, which back then was outside the city... There are disputes and trials over land ownership between several instutions, companies and restitutes, so it stays like this for many years, in ruins... Here's a view from my window:

And here's the location on the map

Some Pole living close to Padova called to one Polish news TV station (TVN 24) and said that fourth identified person died from fear... Terrible.

Two people died from fear, a German woman and an Italian one who was more than 100.

Weird that the earthquake was fell stronger in Slovenia than here in southern Friuli, that is closer. Probably it depends by geological reasons (kind of soil, etc).

Torre dei Modenesi, a tower built in 1213, landmark of the city of Finale Emilia, due to earthquakes, is no more. Last quake of 15.18 made even the last pieces standing collapse.

Is it just me or is SSC trolling me? It doesn't show new posts anymore here... And after I checked a thread, it's still in my subscribed threads folder with the sign that I haven't watched it yet

And look at Parma - weaker than in Ljubljana. I didn't feel it, although I was awake.

I was woken up at 4:05 by the quake... everyone in the house was, except from my dogs
I live between Venice and Padua.

The shake lasted at least 10 seconds. Worst part was getting awake, but then I was not scared, I immediately knew what was going on.
The difference between this and the usual vibrations we're acquainted with (roadworks, heavy machineries) is that the vibration is much wider but with a lower frequency, a sort of slow and wide alternative movement. Like when you're sitting in a car and someone shakes it from the outside.

And the noise, that's unique. A very low tone vibration, it's weird because you hear it but it has no defined origin in space.

Aren't animals usually more aware of an earthquake than humans? AFAIK your dogs should have woke up before everyone else...
