Do you know if the town of Dogliola was affected by the quake. It is about 120m south east of the center. My wife has family there that we have not been able to reach by phone.

Ed

A note from a friend that heard Assergi was not damaged during the earthquake in Italy – she talked with her Dad and it is fine there – Oh yes, that works and its great news –

I’ve been trying to find some information for you but the closest I could find was this – it would be worth finding these places online or in the phone book and call them because some of their members may have been able to get phone calls through or may have heard from their relatives in this area.

Otherwise, it might be possible to see if the Catholic services or other volunteer services have set up an interactive portal for families that are trying to find out about their loved ones.

They are probably swamped with calls though and my best suggestion is that from the article below – you use some of these sources or other similar sources to ask if they have any information from the area. I’m sorry that I couldn’t find more places to check. I found a list of hotels / farmstays / bed and breakfasts in the area and their phone numbers but that probably isn’t going to help much with phone lines down but I will post it here in case anyone wants to try calling them.

The Orsogna Mutual Aid Society

Maria T. Fosco, an administrator at Queens College of the City University of New York and a prominent member of the Abruzzese community in New York

As the community buzzed with grim news and speculation, several organizations, including Mr. Acunto’s foundation and the Italian American Museum in Little Italy in Manhattan, began fund-raising drives to support the emerging relief effort in Italy.

Dr. Domenico Accili, director of Columbia University’s Diabetes and Endocrinology Research Center and a native of L’Aquila, a town at the epicenter of the earthquake, wrote in an e-mail message that he had spoken with his immediate family members and that they were fine.

Even in Rocca di Mezzo – a town 40 kilometres from the epicentre that suffered little damage – people bundled into their cars under heavy blankets, choosing an uncomfortable sleep over the risk of remaining in structurally precarious buildings.

The hotel list below had come from a link on this site (listed below) – there are some photos and other things that may be people in this area that have posted them but I’m not sure anything besides certain cellphones are going to get through right now. It might be worth trying though if nothing else yields good information, someone may be getting email – it would depend on a lot of things, where the server is and electricity unless they have a laptop, but maybe . . .

I’m trying to find out the condition of Fossa a small town outside of L’Aquila. My family is there. We are desperately trying to find out anything.

My reply –

It took awhile to find these things and I do hope they will be of some help. My heart goes out to you and to those you know that are affected by this. – cricketdiane

I found this story about Fossa with three pictures, but there are apparently some volunteer organizations in the area including the Red Cross, Operation Blessings International and

Volunteers from the Catholic association Misericordia di Roma San Romano walked among the vehicles distributing blankets and warm drinks.

‘We arrived on Monday morning from Rome because we sensed that the relief operation was getting going slowly. Now, we’ve become a big family,’ said one volunteer with a tinge of disillusionment.

‘There are around 150 cars here and this evening we served 220 hot meals. They are hungry,’ said the volunteer, who asked not to be named.

Nearby stood a wooden hut that belongs to a scouts group that serves as both a kitchen and a first-aid station in the makeshift camp.

Since arriving Monday morning the dozen volunteers have hardly caught a moment of sleep themselves, but their thoughts were still firmly focused on the quake victims.

Due to be relieved on Wednesday by other volunteers, they expressed concern over the relief operation at the epicentre of the quake.

‘They want to be in tents. They’ve been in their cars since the quake. Tents have been requested and I really hope they come tomorrow. We’ve only got two toilets here as well,’ the volunteer added.

‘Nobody is paying attention to these people,’ said another volunteer.

‘A little bit down below, there are some tents, but here still nothing. At least with us here people don’t feel isolated and neglected.’

Earlier on Tuesday Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said 20 tent camps with 16 field kitchens would be completed by the end of the day to accommodate 14,500 people.

Officials said late Tuesday that the toll from the quake had climbed to 235 people, with more than 1,000 injured and 17,000 homeless.

I thought , that family information could be foundmaybe through the Embassies, the Red Cross family services or the Catholic church, particularly their relief services / lay services websites or local government rescue services websites. http://www.protezionecivile.it/

Its probably still impossible for phones but short of calling hotels in the area, snowmobilers, snowboarder groups, ski associations or something like that – I don’t know. Ham radio networks used to be able to interact when nothing else could but not text messaging through the younger people seems to be the most real time info. It seems to work sometimes when even calls and cellphones don’t get through otherwise.

Reporters are obviously getting into the area, emergency and some charitable volunteer organizations, certain government people, student groups are probably interacting about their friends who are there and some science community members are moving through the area including the geophysics, geologists and others in historical sciences, because of damage to the buildings, or physical sciences, placing seismic monitors and examining the original damage before bulldozers knock down the remaining structures that are beyond repair.

In the ancient mountain-top village of Fossa, surrounded by the soaring snow-capped peaks of the Appenine mountains, the aftershocks of Monday’s earthquake are still being felt.

Fossa was badly hit when the quake first struck and some of the houses that remain standing are far from secure.

L’AQUILA, ITALY – A sea of blue tents is spreading across the suburbs of L’Aquila to shelter those left homeless, but two days on from the earthquake there were still not enough beds and many slept in their cars.

After darkness fell on Tuesday aftershocks rattled the more than 200 people trying to catch some sleep on the seats of their cars parked near the San Sisto church.

Volunteers from the Catholic association Misericordia di Roma San Romano walked among the vehicles distributing blankets and warm drinks.
