Expect here updates of May 11, 2011 Rome earthquake live coverage. It was reported earlier by The Telegraph that a giant earthquake is coming to hit Rome following a seismologist's 1915 prediction that "the big one" will strike on May 11, 2011.

Businesses have reported requests from one in five people to have time off work and many are also keeping children away from school and heading to the beach or country for the day, the report added.

The earthquake forecast was made by Raffaele Bendani, a great seismologist during his time and has given a knighthood by Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. Bendani made a prediction in 1923 that a quake would hit central Italy on January 2, 1924 but he was wrong by two days.
