The quakes were felt in Glina, Petrinja, Sisak, Dvor and Hrvatska Kostajnica. The new tremors have upset the residents of the area, who are having an even more difficult time due to weather conditions. It is especially difficult for all those who have lost their homes and live in container settlements.

Citizens who felt the quake wrote on the EMSC website that a loud shock was heard. Some said the “swaying” lasted about 10 seconds.
