A 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck central Italy on Wednesday morning, killing at least 247 people in the small towns in that area.
Disaster relief organizations are already working hard to rescue survivors and search for more of them.
To aid their efforts, the Italian Red Cross has asked citizens living in nearby areas to disable their Wi-Fi passwords so relief workers can use those networks to communicate with each other more easily.

In addition to helping rescue teams stay connected, unlocking your Wi-Fi network could also help survivors reach out to their loved ones to let them know where they are and how they re holding up.
