Lethbridge Yugoslavia A spacious and modern dty where there bad bean rubble and ruins fe the awesome tight that g r e e t s to Skoplje 10 years after to devastating earth- quake. Broad well- equipped new schools and public boMly designed blocks of new apartment houses and Yugoslavia's big- gest shopping centre combine to make the Macedonian capi- tal the country's most modern city. Only the clock at the ruined old main railway which has remained frozen ever since that fateful morn- ing of July has stood still. It marks to the minute the first violent tremor which for 20 seconds set the entire city swaying. Its force was regis- tered as 10 on the 12-degree Merc all scale. A second slightly less followed immediaOely. Thi-oug'hout the day a total of 84 mostly lesser tremors were recorded. All had an epi- centre at the central square. BUILDINGS COLLAPSED One apartment house col- lapsed and all tenants were trapped. The four-storey Hotel Skoplje's was a total ruin and its 200 guests were caught in the most never to come out alive. A thick curtain of dust ob- scured all. Afterwards the town looked like the target of a bombing raid. Some people had to be released by rescue teams. The final death toll was Another were se- riously injured or became in- valids for hfe. Four-fifths of the city was including most of the cultural institu- municipal facilities and utilities. Some were homeless. Even the old fortress over-looking the city and housing ha arcbeol- ogical museum crumbled in ruins. Some new Mods of apartment houses still stood but few escaped damage. AID CAME QUICKLY As the catastrophe hit the world's headlines that aid started to pour in from every direction. Medical supplies began ar- riving from Austria. Switzerland and Britain that very day. Then followed an American fie'd tons of cement from the Soviet Union and tents from Den- mark. Before 78 countries had pitched in to help rebuild. The scene of reconstruction a Babel of tongues as teams of experts joined in from all over Europe and overseas. In Skop- lje named itself the City of International Solidarity. But the rebirth owed much to the citizens of whose resilience has been fre- quently demonstrated over the years of the city's exis- tence. Its importance over the cen- turies for trade and commu- nications owing largely to its strategic valley may be a principal reason why it changed hands some 94 times. And this was far from the first time it had to be rebuilt. NEARLY COMPLETED One of the most backward and primitive cities until the Second World Skoplje was being transformed into a colorful and modem city when the earthquake struck. Up to more than million have been spent on its second post war reconstruc- which is more than 96 per cent complete. Some new dwellings have been built as well as 55 new schools and an entire street and highway system. Where not long ago there were no there now art immense traffic jama. Skoplje's town how- remains boosed is squat prefabricated build- ings. New administrative buildings ire to be ed before 1975. And a new modern rail and bus terminal to replace the old main station is still under construction on the city's outskirts. The typically medieval end oriental character of Skoplje is a thing of the past and re- stricted nowadays to the Both in urban planning and In building the stress has been on withstanding fu- ture earthquake shocks. IN QUAKE ZONE More than 40 per cent of Yugoslavia is said to lie iff an earthquake zone'and Skoplje has recorded at least 24 quakes of Force 6 intensity. It was destroyed twice previous- ly by 518 AD and in 1520. Tremors are recorded rela- tively frequently in Mace- southern most of the Yugoslav and Sfcop- Ije itself has been shaken times in the last four months. In three lie epi- centre was as little as three miles north or east of the city. Although the strength reached five on the Mercall no damage or casual- ties were reported. The confidence of the popu- lation in the city's future is It has nearly doubled to from the pre-quake Besides its outward appear- Skoplje has also .strengthened its economic base and now has employ- ment for more people than in 1963. Industrial production has tripled and includes steel pro- steel fabrication and manufacture of car drugs and textiles. It was and all the way on those bfg eight-wheelers.
