Today's 6.2-magnitude earthquake is the second to hit central Croatia in the span of 30 hours. It was felt across Croatia and in the surrounding countries.
Yesterday, December 28, a 5.1-magnitude earthquake (and following aftershocks, some of which were over 4 on the Richter Scale) rocked the same area.
Reports state that 12-year-old girl, another child, and a man passed away as a result of today's earthquake.
Material damages are extensive.
We send sincere condolences to the families and communities affected in Petrinja, Sisak, Glina, and across Croatia.
