Italian supercar makers have temporarily stopped production due an earthquake in the province of Modena, the second the area has experienced this month.

The initial earthquake was one of 5.8-magnitude and happened around 9a.m., while the second was an aftershock of 5.6 magnitude that hit around noon. Between the two quakes, ten, possibly more, have been killed.

Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati all halted production as their factories are all located in the area. Maserati is based in Modena, Lamborghini is just 12 miles east in Sant’Agata Bolognese, and Lamborghini’s facilities are 11 miles southwest, in Maranello.

While production is scheduled to start up again on Wednesday, around 5,000 workers in total have been impacted by the quake.

All of northern Italy felt the affects of the quake, and towns and far south as Umbria and Tuscany. Experiencing the most damage are locations such as Cavezzo, Mirandola and Medolla.
