Earthquake in italy

The Milan newspaper Corriere della sera (evening runner?) has an english edition
on the web that has more earthquake details:

RACE AGAINST TIME – Yet again for rescue workers, it is a race against time. As the hours tick by, hopes of finding more survivors under the rubble are fading. So far, more than 100 people have been pulled from the wreckage. Digging continued without interruption through the night at L’Aquila, and in neighbouring municipalities, despite the dozens of tremors that punctuated the darkness. The most violent, which came at 1.15 am, registered 4.8 on the Richter scale. At 2 am, twenty-three hours after the earthquake hit L’Aquila, Marta, a 24-year-old student from the province of Teramo, was rescued from the rubble.
What a terrible way to spend holy week, living in tents or in their cars.
The office is collecting things to send down there but another coworker pointed out
this way to donate:

If you have an Italian mobile phone number, you can send a sms to the following number 48580. You will give one Euro to Protezione Civile. http://www.protezionecivile.it/cms/view.php?cms_pk=15409&dir_pk=52
