Remembering the earthquake in Albania
One year later…
We remember the early morning of November 26, 2019, when Albania was hit by an earthquake of magnitude 6.4.
Damage was recorded mainly in the city of Durrës and the village of Kodër-Thumana, which are located near the epicenter of the earthquake.
A total of 51 people left dead by the quake and over 3,000 people were injured.
In terms of magnitude, this was the largest earthquake that has hit Albania in more than forty years.
On this occasion the organization Help – Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe Mission in Kosovo was mobilized to provide emergency assistance to survivors of this natural disaster.
