The third, and largest, earthquake of the year leaves Croatia shaken

Written by
Lara Rasin

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. 

The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre offered residents their own condolences and advice via Twitter:
