New information shows that the avalanche may have not been caused by the earthquake: http://www.livescience.com/57563-did-earthquakes-cause-italy-avalanche.html The article states that the more likely cause of the avalanche was very heavy snow which had been falling prior to the event. In light of this new information, I think that it would be best to "hide" the avalanche section for now, until the exact cause can be determined.
