The earthquake was clearly felt in Milan for a few seconds. Buildings shook around Italy’s second most populous city and some people took to the streets. But there were no reports of damage or serious damage to the buildings.

After the earthquake, train operator Trenitalia halted traffic on the Milan-Venezia route to check for possible rail damage, but by 5 p.m. traffic was back on track, according to Trenitalia’s website.

Italy is a country resting on turbulent ground. Since the 1970s, several earthquakes have occurred, resulting in numerous deaths. In 2016, about 300 people died and an estimated 2,500 people lost their homes in an earthquake 80 kilometers southeast of Perugia. Later that year, the medieval city of Norcia was hit hard, as were other places in the regions of Umbria, Marche and Lazio.
