📖 Remembering the 2019 Albania #earthquake

♦ On November 26, 2019, at 03:54 local time, a M 6.4 earthquake occurred a few kilometers north of the port city of Durres (Albania) killing 51 people and injuring 600 others.

♦ Several buildings collapsed in the cities of Durres and Thumane, and many were damaged as well as in Tirana, the capital city 30 km from the epicenter.

♦ The death toll was probably limited thanks to five felt foreshocks, especially a M4.4, and a M3.1, which occurred, respectively, 67 and 35 min before the mainshock, leading many people to leave their buildings before the mainshock.

♦ People adopted the LastQuake app to get rapid earthquake information. The system engaged with the earthquake eyewitnesses and collected, at least in some cases, essential information about the damage caused by the earthquake.
