Over the past few days Albania was hit by a number of strong earthquakes. AFAIK, around 30 people lost their lives while 700-800 are injured. Many were left homeless. Rescue teams were sent from neighbouring countries (I think the EU sent teams as well). Earthquakes were also felt in neighbouring countries.

Yeah Earthquakes are always such random tragic events. Nice to see other countries coming to help. If this has a silver lining. This is it.

Sad news, but it is good to see that various countries sent teams there (I read Turkey also sent rescue and Red Crescent teams there). Unfortunetly devestating earthquakes are not unheard in the region, I hope all our Albanian members and their loved ones are safe.
