In Albania, an earthquake measuring 6.4 in magnitude occurred 21 miles northwest of the capital, Tirana, on Nov. 26. At least 27 people were killed and more than 650 were injured, with those numbers expected to rise as rescue crews continued to search for survivors in collapsed buildings. Aftershocks measuring up to 5.6 followed, further damaging buildings. 

Due to the quake, the Albanian government canceled Independence Day celebration plans, scheduled for Nov. 28, instead instituting a day of mourning.
