Italy has been rocked by two moderate earthquakes this evening.

The first was a 5.4-magnitude earthquake in central Italy. That earthquake damaged buildings and cut power lines across the area.

It hit about 66 km to the southeast of Perugia which is a mountainous part of the Marche region.

The second earthquake, measuring 6.4-magnitude, hit moments later.

So far there are no no reports of any fatalities.

The 5.4-magnitude was shallow with  depth of about 9 km.
