angelburst29 :flowers: for worrying! :-)

I currently live in Bonn, but all our family and frends are in Croatia, some 50km North-East from Zagreb. They felt it too but not so much as in capital. There is no structural damage in my small hometown.

Zagreb was hit hard; my friend´s husband is member of civil protection and was mobilised together with the army; they all clean the city, help hospitals, preparing meals for people that lost homes,....

Here are the news with videos from Zagreb:
A massive 5.5 magnitude earthquake hit Zagreb this morning at 6.24 am, followed by another magnitude 5.0 shortly after. It was soon followed by a third earthquake of 3.7 according to Richter.

The epicenter was 16 kilometers north of Zagreb and five kilometers southeast of Oroslavje at a depth of 10 kilometers, the European Mediterranean Seismological Center reported.

Students will move from the Student Center "Cvjetno naselje" to the Student Center "Stjepan Radić" to provide accommodation for people affected by the earthquake.

Seismographer Ines Ivancic urged citizens on Sunday afternoon not to panic in the event of a new earthquake, and reiterated that it could not be predicted whether there would be new earthquakes and how strong they would be.

Ivancic confirmed that as of Sunday morning, when Zagreb was hit by two strong earthquakes, there were about 30 subsequent ones, some of which we did not feel.

It is a common occurrence that can take days but also weeks, Ivancic said after a session of the National Civil Protection Headquarters.

She reiterated that seismographs could not say whether there would be new earthquakes and how strong they would be, or whether they would be stronger than the magnitude magnitudes of 5.5 and 5 on the Richter scale.

A large earthquake which struck north of the Croatian capital Zagreb on Sunday killed a 15-year-old child, health officials have said.

“An ambulance team took to the field and found under a collapsed building a child who no longer showed signs of life, said Zarko Rasic, the head of the Zagreb Emergency Medicine Institute.

The quake struck north of Zagreb on Sunday, GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences said, damaging buildings, sending many people into the streets, burying vehicles in rubble and causing several fires.

Another minor was badly injured and the quake caused several fires and power blackouts in parts of the capital, hospital and emergency services said.😬

Zarko Rasic, head of the Zagreb Emergency Medicine Institute, a children’s hospital, said a 15-year-old was in a critical condition after being found by an emergency services team under a collapsed building and another minor had been admitted with head injuries from a falling roof. He did not give further details on the persons’ identities.

GFZ downgraded the magnitude of the quake from an initial reading of 6.0.

“It lasted over 10 seconds. By far the strongest I have ever felt,” one witness said, adding that it was followed by several aftershocks.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake measured 5.4, while the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) also reported 5.3 magnitude, followed by another 5.1 magnitude earthquake.
Thanks for your concern @angelburst29 ! No one was hurt, Im very thankfull! Hope that other forumites from CT had luck with that too!! Sadly there are few in my family who lost their homes but we immediatelly found solutions, thankfull for that too!
I was extremely lucky (as you might have gathered by my posts) and I had almost no damage in my flat. But I gotta tell you, since I live on groundlevel that I now feel every car which passes as a sign it might start again and my adrenalin glands are quite "confused" and Im swamped with adrenaline even now. Im not scared but my body is prepared for chaos, fight or flight!

This was indeed a very strong earthquake for this region. Or two, one after the other? As you saw the hardest in 140years! And I said recently in C.V. monster thread how we all seem to be cursed by that old curse: May you live in interesting times. I hope it will not get THAT MUCH more interesting tho 🤨 . Maybe I can handle extra stress and am not easily scared but Im the only one like that in my family. Twould be cool if this event will rattle the brains of the hypnotized majority and maybe they will see that corona scare is fake and open a window for change in the community. @istina said it best:
Everywhere in the media goes #stayathome campaign (corona virus), and now citizens in Zagreb are asked to stay outside! Mother Nature speaks the truth.
Its quite sad cause I think older people will be/are hit the hardest, most of them have only small pensions that barely get them by and a lot are in debt. Due to large emmigration and negative natality they are a larger part of population. Many dont have anyone for their needs and will be turning to government even more now. Cant even start to imagine what are tyey going through today. And they were are all already "clubbed to death" by MSM and their fear-mongering... and to get hit by this at 6:30 on Sunday!!! Whats worse they are all pretty much glued to radios and state-tv who are now doubling the quantity of fear-instilling and confusing announcements. CV madness already started an economic crisis and this will make it even worse. Only one guy (Pernar) in our parliament is saying whats the real situation and NO ONE there listens...
I follow the situation in CT and Serbia closely and I see all sorts of things that others dont. Few days before CV madness started our prime minister had a meeting with the heads of all big media-outlets behind closed doors. And the whistleblower journalist who was denied access (Margetić) was attacked on Saturday in his yard by mafia who wants to openly take over the Croatian Footbal Association and all the fan organisations. They are a huge cash cow and MANY are football fans. EDIT: I just felt a new tremor!! 2 seconds at 19:01... adrenalin spiking!!! thats freekin crazy!!!)

Im waiting for reports but we dont have any independent media so we never know what to expect from msm. Sometimes the reporting is good but sometimes its either tabloid or propaganda.

It will be even harder because our national hospitals are all falling apart without earthquakes and I hate to think what it looks like on some wards!!! ( I had the misfortune to be a guest 2 times for serious stuff in last 6 years so I know, they almost killed me after operations with the way they do care after they cut you open.. and Im a social case so I had to fight for care while I was almost dead. If I hadnt been this stubborn and loud and proud for myself Id be dead two times. They save you with knives and scalpels and then they try and kill you with nursing )

This earthquake was no accident in my view. We are starting to see that we are connected to the whole univers, not just our mother planet. With the US troops landing in EU and all this CV madness it is right on cue!!
And I checked RSOE/EDIS map and saw that there were dozens of earthquakes in last 2 days from Dubai to Poland. Supposedly some volcano in Greece got back to life too! Havent found the info on that tho, just heard it from a knowledgable source.

Ill post now befor I maybe blow up here!!! Send light to this region all!!
(EDIT: 19:06 all fine, just one tremor)
Regards

AND BE SAFE ALL!

Croatia Hit By Earthquake Amid Coronavirus [PHOTOS & VIDEO]
Croatia Hit By Earthquake Amid Coronavirus [PHOTOS & VIDEO]


On March 19, the Croatian border was temporarily restricted
and social distancing was implemented which banned all public events and gatherings of more than five people. Save for going grocery shopping or picking up medicine from the pharmacy, no one is to leave their home.

On March 21, with 206 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, much stricter guidelines were implemented in Croatia than the “Safer at Home” order issued in California, Illinois, and New York.

In Croatia, all public transportation is shut down. The general public is to stay at home – no bike rides, leisurely walks, or family gatherings.

The epicenter of the quake was located about six miles north of Zagreb, and according to Time Out, this was the largest earthquake the country has experienced in living memory. It’s hard to think of a worse time to be hit with a natural disaster than amid a worldwide pandemic.

Photos showed that debris fell from buildings that destroyed cars parked alongside the road. Forty minutes after the initial quake, a 5.0 magnitude hit which caused further damage to Zagreb and the surrounding area.

Zagreb is still shaking: Zagrepčani i u utorak javljaju o novim podrhtavanjima tla, Grad Zagreb otvorio račun za donacije
7:15 Zagreb on Tuesday struck with a new earthquake of slightly lower intensity, according to readers.
It was felt in Remete, Sestine, Dubrava, but also in Spanish and other parts of the city.

"I got knocked down the house," a reader from Vrapce reports.

"A slight jolt, it took two or three seconds," the EMSC wrote.

7:00 From the first 5.5-magnitude earthquake on Richter that struck Zagreb and the surrounding area on Sunday morning at 6:24 a.m. until midnight on Monday, the Croatian Seismological Service recorded a total of 74 earthquakes , as seen in a chart published on the official profile on Twitter.

There were few dozen quakes around the region, no wonder! Italy had more than few... Iran, Turkey, Greece ... I lost count. And as @Aeneas noticed we are having an UPTICK in earthquakes around the world.

As anyone can easily imagine here in Croatia earthquakes are of interest... at least to me. And Ive been looking at newsletters and my rs feed from RSOE/EDIS a LOT lately...

Im seeing 50ish earthquakes daily... Report for March.24 was 65 earthquakes around the globe.
When Im looking at my rs feed I get a feelinng that certain days have more quakes in certain "regions" of the world. Most are M 1-4... not that strong and people rarely feel it. But thats a lot for me.. I cant compare so I dont know if Im under the impression or what. Im sort of looking forg the ones that are stronger M 5 and higher and checking are they in areas with people. Those do damage.
And I havent figured out if the depth at wich they hit is a key factor or not. And where the plates are ... Im a noobx100... and this stuff usually doesnt interest me :scooter:

That Russian Island (Severo-Kuril'sk, [Sakhalin])on the top of the Sea of Japan is an exception tho. I think it is getting hit with M 4-5 and higher for 4 days in a row... and Im watching this 4 days only... lolz... to me it seems stuff is shaking more than usual.
