  • Description

    There have been more slight tremors in the regions of northern Italy and Yugoslavia, where a major earthquake killed more than a thousand people in May.

    SYNOPSIS: But despite weeklong heavy rains and the minor 'quakes - another hit them on Wednesday (13 October), the villagers of Breginj in the Yugoslav sector of the disaster zone are determined to rebuild their homes. Many have been living in tents or caravans since the big 'quake, but hope they'll be back in proper houses before Christmas and the severe mountainous winter sets in. More than 3,000 construction workers are now there helping with the rebuilding programme. In all, more than 400 new homes will be built. So far, 15 are up to roofing stage.

    Almost the whole village was obliterated in May, but now 400 trucks a day are being unloaded with building materials that are pouring in from other parts of the country channelled through the International Red Cross. Yugoslavia is also helping earthquake victims across the border in Italy by sending truckloads of materials to villages there to assist in the mammoth rebuilding task.
