The mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, said on Monday that the situation in the Italian capital is under control after the strong earthquake that shook central Italy on Sunday morning. "At the moment, the situation is still under control and firefighters and police are keeping an eye on the city", Raggi said on the sidelines of a press conference at the city hall about the damages in Rome after the shock. In case of necessity, both forces "will verify or check any kind of crack or settlement that might happen", she also said. Some buildings suffered cracks as a result of the shock and a bridge was closed down for several hours, during which stability controls were made. Sunday's earthquake was the strongest recorded in Italy since the Irpinia tremor in 1980, which caused more than at least 2,483 deaths.
