The massive wildfires that engulfed the entire territory during these summer days may be followed by a series of earthquakes.
This gloomy warning was made on Thursday by the Civil Emergencies General Director, Shemsi Premci during a communication with journalists.
“The risk of earthquakes increases after a hot summer First of all, we must bear in mind that the period of earthquake repetition is timely and defined,” said Premci.
According to him if we calculate the earthquakes of 1967 and a period of return once in 50 years there’s a high risk of earthquakes in Elbasan, Tirana, Debar, Shkodra, Korca, etc.
“We have to be careful due to the expected situations. The first land tremors have already started in the Elbasan region. Thus we must be prepared because normally there’s a risk of earthquakes in 2017 and early 2018, as predicted by Geo-science," declared Premci.
