The earthquakes and tremors of a few days ago were even felt in villages near Peqin. In the administrative unit of Sheze, that is part of the city of Peqin, the earthquake has caused damage to at least 37 of the old houses.
According to the residents, the foundations of the houses are damaged and the walls of the houses are cracked.
The administrative unit has managed to evidence all damage and has informed the Peqin Municipality about the damage caused.
Head of the administrative unit, Shefqet Tabaku, says that the damaged houses had more foundation cracks. Four of them have been heavily damaged to the point where they have become completely un-inhabitable.
"We have briefly informed the City Hall that will set up the working group to accurately record the damage caused to the 37 families affected by the earthquake," stated Tabaku.
Now after the approval of the City Hall of Peqin Municipality, the process will begin to record all damaged houses, not only from the municipal emergency department, but also from the prefecture of Elbasan.
