    Background: ANCONA, ITALY

    In Italy, thousands of people have left their homes in the city of Ancona, after a giant landslide swept down a hillside just outside its perimeter. The landslip started moving during the night of December 13/14 and severed electric and gas mains services. No injuries were reported, but the slide devastated large areas of the city, and the main railway line between Ancona and Bologna was wrecked. The lines lay twisted and buckled, and giant cracks and chasms ripped through many major roads. Because the area was hit by a major slide ten years' ago, the authorities knew of potential danger. As the slide has kept on moving slowly towards the sea, more than 2,000 people packed their belongings and left the area to move into hotels nearby. The Italian Civil Protection Minister, Mr Loris Fortuna, has left Rome to inspect the damage.
