At least 37 dead in powerful Italy earthquake. Details in the app

A devastating earthquake rocked central Italy early Wednesday, collapsing homes on top of residents as they slept, the Associated Press reports.

At least 37 people were killed in hard-hit towns where rescue crews raced to dig survivors out of the rubble.

The death toll is likely to rise as crews reached homes in more remote hamlets.
