Tourism operators are requesting tourists to visit Morocco after earthquake

Thursday, September 14, 2023


In the streets of Marrakesh, life is quite normal says Laila Lamb, in spite of the impairment and wreckages of the earthquake with 6.8 magnitude that struck only 70 kilometres south-west of Marrakesh, late on Friday.

Lamb is a Moroccan national, but she grew up in the City of New York, and she manages a travel and events company that functions in her home country, where she is living at this moment. She barely missed the disaster, as on Friday evening she had left on a plane to Italy to attend an event. When she came back few hours later, her phone kept on ringing limitlessly with messages from loved ones, friends and family.

When she actually understood what had happened, and realized the degree of the disaster, she went into action. She’s has spent the past three days on her phone, mobilizing the corresponding tourism and hospitality business owners, and organizing relief initiations.

The city has apparent damages, she informs The National over Zoom. She was speaking fast and hysterically. She added that a lot of frontages have been damaged and in the old city of Marrakesh, due to the old constructions, there was greater amount of destruction, however, very low compared to other sections.
