    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.

    Unhappy

    If it was surface it is serious! I know from Romania much bigger earthquakes as energy often released and which are felt by people for distances of thousands of kilometers. Unfortunately, we are all in this area under the threat of earthquakes.
