Earthquakes in Albania

Starting on 1 June 2019, 70 shocks were recorded within 48 hours in the south-east of Albania. The deepest tremor recorded a 5.3 Richter magnitude.

The epicentre was in the Korca municipality, where Caritas Albania delivers support to migrants coming from Greece who try to cross the border there.
