A powerful earthquake, registered by the USGS as M6.4, hit Albania at 02:54 UTC on Nov 26. The agency is reporting a depth of 20 km (12.4 miles).
The epicenter was located 12 km (7.5 miles) WSW of Mamurras (population 8,000), Albania.
There are 2.6 million people living within 100 km (62 miles) and 1.3 million within 50 km (31 miles). While in total, some 12.4 million people are estimated to have felt the shaking.
The quake, along with its strong aftershocks, have been felt across the region — even as far as Italy and Serbia, located some 700 km (435 miles) away.
The USGS has issued an orange alert for economic losses, meaning significant damage is likely and the disaster is potentially widespread. Estimated economic losses are 0-2% GDP of Albania. Past events with this alert level have required a regional or national level response.
The agency has also issued a yellow alert for shaking-related fatalities, and casualties have been reported — according to a defence ministry spokeswoman, at least 13 people are known to have died; one man after jumping from a window in panic.
In addition, hundreds have been reported injured by the BBC.
Stay tuned for updates.
Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in our sun.
The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.
