ROME—A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck central Italy early Wednesday, killing 73 people and leaving many trapped beneath the rubble of buildings that collapsed while they slept.

Italian soldiers and emergency crews were aiding the injured and searching for survivors in the hardest-hit towns of Amatrice, Pescara del Tronto and Accumoli, located close to the epicenter.

“The center of Amatrice is completely destroyed,” Nicola Zingaretti, president of the Lazio region, told Italian television. Aerial photos showed that the town was virtually flattened.
