6.3 magnitude earthquake shakes Croatia, causing extensive property damage &

Yesterday Croatia was faced with strong tremors, the earthquake which was reported to be of magnitude 6.3. After the main shock an even lighter shaking was felt. According to the EMSC, the epicenter was 46 kilometers southeast of Zagreb, somewhere around Petrinja. Meanwhile the German Center for Geoscientific Research (GFZ) says the quake struck at a depth of 10 kilometers. Although there has been damage in a large area, it seems that the most critical situation is in Petrinja, where a large number of houses and buildings have been destroyed. The pictures published from this area are scary. The footage shows people being rescued from the rubble near the quake's epicenter. Mayor Darinko Dumbovic has also confirmed the death of a 12-year-old minor. "Just like in Hiroshima, half the city is damaged. Now I am in front of a girl who died, we are waiting for help. We took out a small four-year-old child, the city is ruined, you can no longer live in it. Unfortunately, mothers cry for their children. "We need help, we need emergency services," Dumbovic said. The death of the 12-year-old has been confirmed by the Prime Minister of Croatia, Andrej Plenkovi.. "Right now, we have no other information about potential victims, but no one can say for sure. Everyone is there, the army, the emergency services are coming from Zagreb, the police and the civil defense. We need to find alternative shelter. We will have to remove people from Petrinja because it is not safe there. "We are sorry, this is a tragedy," Prime Minister Plenkovic told reporters in Petrinje.

Tomislav Fabijanic, who runs the emergency medical service in Sisak near the town of Petrinja, said there were many injured in both towns. "There are people with fractures and concussions and some had to be operated on," he said. Slovenian news agency STA said Slovenia's only nuclear power plant, located 100km from the quake's epicenter, had been shut down as a precaution. "I can confirm the closure as a precautionary measure," spokeswoman Ida Novak Jerele told AFP. Croatian President Zoran Milanovic said large funds would be needed to rebuild the town of Petrinja, which was the epicenter of the powerful earthquake. "Last year Durrës, and this is practically an earthquake with the same strength. It will take a lot of money. This will go through the EU. I do not worry, this city will be rebuilt, but no one can compensate for the emotional damage. "Petrinja will be rebuilt with money from the EU," Milanovic said. The Ministry of Internal Affairs called for restraint and respect for measures against coronavirus even in open places. Croatia had its second day of earthquakes yesterday. This is because on Monday some tremors were felt which may have been precursors of yesterday's earthquake. A day earlier (December 28th), a milder earthquake shook central Croatia and its capital, Zagreb, causing damage to several buildings. The quake was followed by another quake, with a magnitude of 4.9. In March, a 5.3 magnitude earthquake caused significant damage in Zagreb. One person died and at least 27 were injured.
