(NECN/ABC) - There are fears this noon of a heavy death toll after a 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck today in central Italy. More than 90 are known dead and many more may be trapped in the rubble of collapsed buildings. 1,500 have been hurt, and tens of thousands are reported homeless. The epicenter was the ancient town of L'Aquila -- about 60 miles east of Rome. The Prime Minister has canceled a trip to Russia to visit the affected area. The Italian government has declared a state of emergency, calling this their worst earthquake in 30 years. Condolences are being sent in from around the world. ABC's Sonia Gallego reprots.
