The total number of missing persons after the earthquake in Albania has not yet been determined. The assessment of material damage should begin in the coming period. There was no major damage. The Durres hospital was damaged. It should be emphasized that the scale of the disaster may have been affected by problems with illegal activities, construction of buildings, because not all of the city’s neighborhoods were destroyed, but individual buildings.
When damage to buildings and tragic casualties are summed up, the effects of an earthquake will have long-term consequences. This will be the result of mass tourism and unplanned construction in Durres, a city that is the focus of tourism in Albania.
The Albanian government has warned citizens across the country and Europe to be wary of donations for post-earthquake relief as a number of fraudsters have emerged seeking to take advantage of the situation and open fake accounts to raise money.
