We had a few small tremors this morning -- just enough to rattle the furniture and windows and sent the cat into a tizzy. Last Monday, when Don and I came home from work the poliza weren't allowing anyone to go through Motta (one of the small towns we normally drive through to get home) -- wondered about it, but figured it was just blocked for holiday celebrations. Imagine our surprise a few days later to learn that a tornado had gone through the town.

Regretfully, several were critically injured in Catania (the major town just east of us on the coast). The newscast link shows part of Motta (at about the 1 minute point)
