Thank you for this Carole.
As you know there were a few people I was worried about, but even though I have not been able to contact everyone, I have, with your help and the excellent resources appearing online, established that neither of the two towns were too seriously damaged, so am certain that they are okay by extension. I am however going to book a trip over for later in the year (giving time for roads to be reopened) so we can catch up with everyone over there properly. It has been far too long since we were there anyway.
On a positive note, I believe that Madonna has made a substantial donation toward her ancestral town in Abruzzo following a direct appeal by the town's mayor.
