    Albania earthquake: Cars crushed and people run into streets after 5.6 tremor



    Albania earthquake: Cars crushed and people run into streets after 5.6 tremor

    About 70 people were injured by falling items or debris as Albania was hit by its strongest quake in decades


    Homes collapsed, terrified residents ran into the streets and about 70 people were hurt as Albania was rocked by its strongest earthquake in 30 years.


    Cars were crushed by falling bricks in the capital Tirana and buildings were badly damaged in the coastal town of Durres, close to the epicentre, as two tremors were felt in quick succession.


    Residents told of scenes of "panic" and "chaos" as the 5.6 magnitude tremor - also felt in Italy and Greece - shook homes, knocked items off shelves, cut power and telephone service, and damaged a football stadium during a match.

    Earthquake last night again. 20 people dead so far, at least 600 injured. I was awoken immediately by the shaking at 3:54am last night.

    OMG. Albania earthquake was the most severe in the Durres region since 1926. At least 18 people died and 600 were injured. All my solidarity with the Albanian people at this difficult time. My condolences to the relatives of the victims of this tragedy and my prayers for the prompt recovery of the wounded.

    The earth continues to tremble, another strong earthquake in the afternoon. People refuse to enter their homes. A terrible situation.

    He resisted for 17 hours stuck under the rubble, asked for a cigarette and then closed his eyes forever.
