Earthquake hits central Italy

(CNN) —  

Meet the “clown” running for Congress in South Carolina. No, really. Here’s what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door. (You can also get “5 Things You Need to Know Today” delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)

1. Italy earthquake

It’s daylight now in central Italy, which gives rescuers a few precious hours for a mad scramble to dig as many survivors out from the rubble before darkness plunges the region and the lack of electricity makes the job impossible. At least 37 people are dead after a 6.2 magnitude quake struck three villages in a mountainous area. The tremors were so strong they rattled Rome – about 100 miles away. “We’re digging, digging… hoping to find someone alive,” the mayor of one of the villages said. Rescue workers called residents’ cellphones, and tried to get to those who answered. If there was no answer, they moved on to the next person. You can follow the latest on the quake here.

2. North Korea

North Korea test-fired a missile from a submarine - and this one flew 300 miles toward Japan. This means the Kim regime is making rapid progress in its quest to strike nations it has a beef with. The last couple of sub-launched missiles sputtered after only a short distance. There was consternation and condemnation from the usual quarters, but when has that dissuaded the North?

3. Turkey

It’s war on two fronts for Turkey. It’s going after ISIS in northern Syria with a new offensive, Euphrates Shield. This was inevitable, especially after that horrific ISIS attack at a wedding ceremony over the weekend. And it’s also shelling Kurdish fighters who’re fighting ISIS. Turkey says they’re linked to the PKK, which it blames for attacks inside its soil since a ceasefire crumbled last year. Here’s an explainer on Turkey’s catalog of enemies.

4. Stanford rape case judge

Judge Aaron Persky – who sentenced ex-Stanford swimmer Brock Turner to just six months in county jail for rape – has recused himself from a child porn case he was going to rule on today. Persky mulled reducing a plumber’s felony child porn conviction down to a misdemeanor, but that’ll now be handled by another judge. A recall effort to boot Persky off the bench is still going strong.

5. Email hack

US officials think Russian hackers have launched cyberattacks – not just against the DNC but also against DC think tanks and reporters, all in an effort to gather intel about the government. News organizations are top targets because they can yield sensitive information.
