From August to October of 2016, central Italy experienced a devastating sequence of earthquakes that produced nearly complete destruction of several historic villages, some massive landslides, pronounced surface fault rupture on a normal fault system, extensive sets of ground motion recordings, and many other effects. GEER responded to this disaster with a first reconnaissance in September 2016 (following the 24 August event) and a second in November-December 2016 (following events on 26 and 30 October). The reports can be found below. For each mobilization, an initial report is followed by a detailed report. 3D models of damage areas are available at BYU-PRISM: http://prismweb.groups.et.byu.net/gallery2/2016%20Central%20Italy%20Earthquakes/
