Avalanche hits hotel after Italy earthquake killing 'many'

Up to 30 people are feared to have died after an avalanche believed to have been triggered by an earthquake hit a spa hotel in Italy.

It buried the remote, four-storey Hotel Rigopiano in the town of Farindola in the central Abruzzo region on Wednesday night.

The top floor and roof of the complex were barely visible above a thick blanket of snow on the Gran Sasso mountain.

    People trapped in an Italian hotel hit by an avalanche sent text messages to the emergency services and loved ones pleading for help, according to local reports.

    "Help, help, we are dying of the cold," someone stuck in the hotel wrote, La Repubblica reported.

    Footage showed relatives exchanging phone messages with someone trapped inside. One text sent urged them to "be calm".

    Hopes fade for survivors of Italian avalanche


    Italian search and rescue teams are engaged in a desperate race against time to free people trapped inside a remote hotel hit by an avalanche.

    The four-star Hotel Rigopiano was almost completely covered by the deluge late on Wednesday night in the remote, mountainous region.

    Rescuers had to use skis to reach the scene and gaining access since has proved extremely difficult for rescuers.

    Two bodies have been recovered so far, but the search effort has been hampered by heavy snowfall and fears that the building would collapse.
