Albania will have a new seismic map.  After the November 26, 2019 earthquake that struck Albania and the apocalyptic situation that Turkey went through last month, Albanian seismologists are reassessing the seismic risks in the country.

The new map will no longer be divided into areas based on seismic activity, but the risk will be considered the same all over the country.

Referring to the new map, new constructions will have to apply construction codes to endure earthquakes measuring up to 8 on the Richter scale.

During a scientific conference on the seismic activity in our region, experts talked about the lessons that must be learned by institutions when earthquakes strike.

After the November 26 earthquake that caused 51 deaths and hundreds of buildings destroyed, the geo-scientific institute is expected to double the number of equipment that measure earthquakes across the country.
