Inside a 5,000-square-foot Cold War-era bomb shelter beneath a suburban home

Back in the 70's and 80's of the previous century there was such a thing as the Cold War. It pitted two nuclear super powers, the USA and the USSR, against each other. To protect themselves against a nuclear attack some people built bomb shelters underneath their home or in their garden. This 5,000 square-foot example looks like quite a nice place to stay while above you Fall Out 5 is being played out.

Powerful Earthquakes in central Italy leaves dozens dead

Strong earthquakes struck a mountainous stretch of central Italy early Wednesday, killing at least 38 people, trapping scores under debris and setting off tremors that awakened residents in Rome, nearly 100 miles to the southwest. The first, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake, struck at 3:36 a.m., about 6.5 miles southeast of the town of Norcia in the Umbria region, followed by about 40 quakes over the next three hours, including a 5.5-magnitude temblor at 4:33 a.m. The death toll, reported by the Italian news media, was almost certain to rise, given that scores of people remained unaccounted for. The authorities said the first quake was comparable in intensity to a 2009 earthquake in the Abruzzo region of central Italy that killed more than 300 people.
