All the workers and employees have been allowed to join their families,” said a Ferrari spokesman on the company’s official twitter feed.

Lamborghini tweets, “5.9 earthquake in the region, here in Sant’Agata everything looks fine and engineers are checking the lamborghini factory and the building.”

About 5,000 workers were sent home due to the quakes, as inspectors came into the buildings to make sure that the earthquake did not due any fatal damage. All three companies say that production will begin again as soon as possible.

A total 15 deaths have been reported as a result of the earthquakes, though none of them happened at the aforementioned facilities.
