In this May 29, 2012 file photo, elderly people lay on their beds after they were evacuated from the nearby hospital, in Mirandola, northern Italy. A powerful earthquake killed at least 15 people and left 200 injured as it rocked a swath of northern Italy hit just nine days ago. Factories, warehouses and churches collapsed, dealing a second blow to a region where thousands remained homeless from the previous, stronger temblor. The 5.8 magnitude quake left 14,000 people homeless in the Emilia Romagna region north of Bologna, one of Italy's most agriculturally and industrially productive areas.
