Franco Gabrielli, head of Civil Protection, has given updated numbers of devastating earthquake that hit Northern Italy yesterday. The number of fatalities is down 1 to 16, with 1 person still missing. Search and rescue teams are still searching the rubble and hoping they will not find more people. Historical buildings and churches have been damaged further and the damage cost will be incredibly high to compensate rebuilding, restoration works etc.

350 people have been injured, 12 of whom have been seriously injured. 8000 people are homeless in addition to the 6000 from the May 20th quake. It has also been suggested that around 8000 buildings have been damaged or destroyed as a result of the May 29 quakes potentially totaling 250-300 million euros just by building losses.
