Albanian earthquakes felt in Dubrovnik

By  Sep 22, 2019

Two major earthquakes hit Albania yesterday afternoon and the tremors were felt in Dubrovnik.

According to reports the first earthquake measured 3.3 on the Richter scale. But that was clearly only the beginning because at 4.05pm the second earthquake hit and was much stronger, measuring 5.7 on the Richter scale. And then ten minutes later another earthquake shook the ground at 5.7 degrees on the Richter scale.

Both earthquakes occurred just thirty kilometres from Tirana. The first seismological data indicate that the epicenter of the earthquake was at sea, at a depth of about ten kilometres. No human casualties have been reported so far. 

It is stated that soil tremors were also felt in Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Greece, Kosovo, and even Italy, and less tremors were also felt in Croatia in the Dubrovnik area.
