A pair of powerful earthquakes shook parts of Italy, collapsing buildings and snarling a major highway, just two months after a powerful earthquake in the country killed nearly 300 people.

The first earthquake, which hit at 7:10 p.m. local time (1:10 p.m. ET), measured a magnitude 5.5. Two hours later, at 9:18 p.m. local time (3:18 p.m. ET), the second and more powerful quake, measured at magnitude 6.1, hit.

A map by the U.S. Geological Survey shows the proximity of the two earthquakes that struck Italy on Wednesday.
