Morocco, Libya disasters bring locals together in Denver

1 min read


DENVER (KDVR) — The Morocco earthquake brought together local worshippers of the Denver Islamic Society on Monday as part of the “breaking of the fast,” where they remembered those affected by the devastating temblor.

The Morocco earthquake has claimed the lives of more than 2,800 people as rescuers race to find survivors.

“We even have family members that live in Casablanca. They felt the shaking of the buildings. Some of them stayed out until 3 or 4 in the morning before they went back home,” said Youssef Marrakchi, who came to Denver as a teenager in the ’90s.

“The buildings are basically brick and mud,” said Marrakchi, referencing the structures in hard-hit Marrakech and the Atlas Mountain Range.
