The 1783 Calabrian earthquakes were a sequence of five strong earthquakes that hit the region of Calabria in southern Italy (then part of the Kingdom of Naples), the first two of which produced significant tsunamis. The epicenters form a clear alignment extending nearly 100 km from the Straits of Messina to about 18 km SSW of Catanzaro. The epicenter of the first earthquake occurred in the plain of Palmi. The earthquakes occurred over a period of nearly two months, all with estimated magnitudes of 5.9 or greater. Estimates of the total number of deaths lie in the range 32,000 to 50,000.

That Messina region is not really citizen friendly.

Does this image remind you of an earthquake, or of something different?

The picture seems to show a volcano going off in the background but, yeah, those look like missile strikes.

Reminded me of the Murrah building in downtown OKC. Surrounding buildings had minor damage only.
