Drone footage shows destroyed churches in Amatrice after the earthquake

2016-09-06

Amatrice was a picturesque town rich in artistic and historic heritage. This website, "Le cento chiese di Amatrice” shows what it looked like before the devastating earthquake that hit the town in late August.

This is what it looks like now. 

To evaluate the damages in the internal structures of these buildings, firefighters have used robots and drones from the Tradr project, which specializes in using the latest technology in emergency situations.

All the videos and pictures taken by these machines will help in the reconstruction and refurbishment of these damaged buildings.

More than 5000 people were forced to leave their homes in the Amatrice area, many of them having to stay with friends or relatives or, in worse cases, in tents. 

The earthquake that hit the region on August 24 left a death toll of 295. The Italian government is still managing the crisis, as victims still receive countless signs of support, including those from Pope Francis, who promised to visit the affected area as soon as he can.
