Otherwise, the Albanian Ministry of Defense said earlier that a total of 1,376 earthquakes had been recorded in diverse parts of Albania since November 26th.

Albanian seismologist Rapo Ormeni said on Sunday that there were 1.300 weaker earthquakes in Durres, and other parts of the country, claiming that this is a normal process needed to release energy after the main earthquake that struck Albania on November 26th.

A total of 51 people died in the aftermath of the 6.4 magnitude earthquake, and about 2,000 people were injured. About 9,000 Albanians cannot return to their homes after the earthquake.
