There were no immediate reports of casualties.

The first quake, with a preliminary magnitude of 5.3 hit the region north of Amatrice at about 10:25 a.m. (0925 GMT), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The second quake with a magnitude of 5.7 hit the same area about 50 minutes later, and ten minutes later a third was measured at magnitude-5.3.
