Pray for the Fathers of Norcia! They've already been hit once, and there was another earthquake a bit ago!

I just got a message from them saying that the Basilica was "flattened" and totally destroyed.

How old is the basilica itself?

This is bad... Pray for my family that's in the zone  --- thankfully on the West coast.  Lord, have mercy...

A little research shows that it's 14th-15th century with a major reconstruction in the 18tgh.
