angelburst29 for worrying!Regulattor, Casper, Mari, Istina and Agron, Thanks for checking in - so we know how you and your Families are doing!
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:
Snažan potres magnitude 5,5 pogodio je jutros Zagreb,u 6.24 sati, a nešto kasnije uslijedio je još jedan, magnitude 5,0. Ubrzo je uslijedio i treći potres jačine 3,7 prema Richteru.
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.
