Largest Earthquake in Decades Hits Albania

A large earthquake has hit Albania, only 2 months after a previous one that was estimated to be the largest in 30 years.

A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the city of Durres this morning at 3.54am, according to US Geological Survey. Major shocks were felt in the capital, Tirana.

Last major earthquake 2 months ago was estimated at 5.6 magnitude.

No human deaths have been reported so far.

People went out of their houses and poured into the streets.

September’s earthquake left over 100 people injured, 500 houses and 100 apartment buildings damaged, with hundreds more people spending the night outside, too fearful to return to their homes. No human deaths were reported.
