Four strong earthquakes Wednesday shook the same region of central Italy that suffered deadly temblors last year, sending quake-rattled residents into panic and further isolating towns that have been buried under more than a meter of snow for days.A second quake with a magnitude of 5.7 hit the same area about 50 minutes later, and 10 minutes later a third was measured at magnitude 5.3 . Several hours later another 5.1-magnitude quake shook the same area. Three quakes in mountainous central Italy last year killed nearly 300 people in and around the medieval town of Amatrice and caused significant damage to older buildings.L'Aquila itself suffered a devastating 6.3-magnitude earthquake in 2009 that killed more than 300 .
