Today marks 3 years since the tragic earthquake of November 26, 2019
November 26, 3 years ago, was a sad day for our country. The earthquake that woke Albanians from sleep at 03:54 in the morning hit several cities, but Durrës was the city that suffered the most damage, while the largest number of victims was recorded in Thumana.
51 dead, over 1 thousand injured and thousands of destroyed buildings was the balance of this tragic earthquake.
The earthquake left many residents homeless in several areas of the city of Durrës, Fushë-Kruja, Laçi, Lezha and Tirana, while still today the residents have not been settled in apartments.
The scientific data from the Institute of Geosciences showed that the earthquake of November 26, 2019 with a magnitude of 6.4 was felt at magnitude 9 in Hamallaj, Jube and Rrushkull, magnitude 8-9 in Durrësi, Sukth and Kuraten.
The strong seismic tremors also brought a lot of panic throughout the country, not only on that day but also for the following months, bringing panic to many Albanian citizens.
Also, the earthquake brought the solidarity of all the countries of the world, expressing it through numerous financial aid, or the behavior of many of the search and rescue forces, who fought to get the bodies out from under the ruins together with the Albanian forces.
Albania immediately returned to the center of world media reports. Albanians, neighbors, partners start a quick mobilization to come to Albania's aid.
