Day 8: Group 3 in Arquata and Pescara del Tronto

In Arquata, amongst other buildings, we surveyed a number of school buildings.  Structural and non-structural damage was observed in all cases.

In the afternoon we were privileged to visit Pescara del Tronto (thanks to the Fire Brigade) to inspect as many reinforced concrete buildings as possible.  The performance varied greatly.
