The epicenter of the quake was near Maranti, northeast of Florence, and struck at 5:10 a.m., after several smaller quakes, according to Italy’s Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.

The agency noted that the region is considered at high risk for earthquakes, specifically citing one in 1919 that hit Mugello, which was one of the strongest to hit Italy in the 20th century.
Italy’s Fire Brigade rescue team said it had received some calls from worried residents, but that no damage or injuries had been reported so far.
