NORWOOD, Ohio -- Thousands of people across the United States are trying to get in contact with loved ones in Italy, where dozens of people were killed during an earthquake overnight.

In Norwood, one family feels that panic and worry. 

"I'm trying to reach Lelio," said Will DeLuca, owner of Betta's Italian Oven in Norwood. "He's my younger cousin; his mom and dad live right in that area."

DeLuca's family's hometown, Pietra Milano, translates to "the rock that moves," he said.
