Mediterranean tsunami, over 13 million people in danger including Albania, new study suggests
A large tsunami is expected to hit Mediterranean that could threaten the lives of 130 million people living along coastlines, a new study suggests, according to Daily Mail.

Researchers examining the impact of earthquakes off the north coast of Africa have simulated the impact of the devastating waves one might trigger.

They found that if an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 hit off the coasts of eastern Sicily in Italy and southern Crete in Greece, it would leave large areas of the coastline under water.

This kind of tsunami occurs every 100 years, according to researches. They suggest that is this tsunami that flooded ancient cities in Egypt and ancient Greece.


This tsunami may also affect Albanian coast, especially South coasts such as Karaburun and Saranda due to their exposure to tsunami. Northern Albanian coasts hardly can be affected if this study will result in reality.
