SAN FELICE SUL PANARO, Italy (AP) - Rescuers say they have pulled a woman alive from the rubble of her apartment building, 12 hours after a killer quake hit northern Italy.

Firefighters told Sky TG24 that the woman yelled out to rescuers as they were about to reach her Tuesday night in the rubble of her kitchen.

She had gone into the building, which had been damaged by the region's May 20 quake, reportedly to retrieve some clothes, when Tuesday's 5.8 magnitude temblor struck, collapsing the apartment building of several stories.

In an unrelated development, officials changed Tuesday's death toll 16 - one lower than earlier - and said one person remains missing. The number of injured was raised  to 350.

MILAN, Italy -- An earthquake struck northern Italy on Tuesday, killing at least 15 people, damaging buildings and spreading panic among thousands of residents still living in tents after a tremor shook the region just over a week ago, destroying their homes.

Officials and a source from the Italian Red Cross said several people were trapped under the rubble of houses and warehouses in the Emilia-Romagna region. Police said 10 people were confirmed dead but the toll was likely to rise.

The United States Geological Survey said the 5.8-magnitude quake, which struck at 9:00 a.m. local time (3 a.m. ET), was centered 25 miles northwest of Bologna and was felt across much of northern and central Italy.

"The situation is very serious, some people are stuck under the rubble," Alberto Silvestri, the mayor of San Felice sul Panaro, one of the towns near the epicenter, told SkyTG24. click here to read more
