    Everyone there staying calm and helping.. if it were America everyone would have their phones out and be recording

    • Zagrebcan }{}{ Reply

      It is very sad to hear that but I knew that American society is a total catastroph. This is how people in Croatia and I would say also in all of the Balkans are. Everybody thinks we are aggressive people who live 100 years behind but they forget how lovely people we are.

      Be safe and God bless you from America

      @Zagrebcan }{}{ They are 100 years behind bcs of their government! Croatia is a mafia country. Thats why lots of people are migrating.

    • Biserka Sertić Reply

      Good observation! Reason is that we stil have some basic human reactions, wich are probably lost in American urban population.Another reason is we use to have good “training” for extreme situations during war time in 90s (whatever happened, people don’t make a big deal out of it, just do your best, as much as you can)

    Why one wearing a mask

    • Rebel Fighter Reply

      No one cares dude. It’s an earthquake. Bigger things to worry about than a worthless face diaper. And why is this even a question?? Once the truth about Covid is known, ppl will be holding mask burning parties.

    • Tyler Durden Reply

      They were in their cars, buildings. When the quake started. Wearing a mask in Croatia is mandatory you can’t enter in a store or anywhere else without it. When the earthquake stars you don’t think about covid.

    • Jure Barchgliasis Reply

    • hansy555 Reply

      @Orpheas Nestos someone who claims that earthquake that killed people (of various nationalities and religions btw) and left thousands homeless is “paying for the sins of last 5000 years” is degenerate. only other explanation could be his/her bad use of english, and in that case i withdraw my comment.

    6.3 really isnt that big for us in California

    • Tyler Durden Reply

      This earthquake had a very shallow epicenter. About 10 km benethe the surface. It was felt more than 500 km from the epicenter. If it was deeper in the ground it wouldn’t create such destruction.

    Serbs have the HARRP

    • Tyler Durden Reply

      Yes we know. You tested it in 2015 floods. It got out of control and almost flooded Belgrade.

    • Tyler Durden Reply

      You are either sick or stupid for bringing that subject to an earthquake video. Maybe both. And now you are dragging me into that subject.
      Yeah, remember Hitler, Mussolini, Ottoman empire, Mongolians. You can go back thousand of years in the past and many wars in the Balkan and the world. Well go back just 25 years. Remember Srebrenica
      Among others.

      Use that HARRP to treat your brain.
      And why do you think that I am from Croatia?
      Well, you are one sick individual.
      You weren’t born like this, you are indoctrinated.
      Read some books educate yourself. Stop being a tool. And don’t be happy about other misfortune.
      Today Croatia had an earthquake tomorrow Serbia could have it. It’s a small active area.
      Live long and prosper.🖖

    I was in Zagreb with my sister yesterday and my family and around 12:19 pm the earthquake hit, we all started running outside, the whole building shook, the whole ground with the buildings rocked and you feel gravity pulling you aside. Terrible feeling. And it is interesting how the city was empty before the earthquake, no one was on the road when the earthquake hit, everyone ran to the streets, then the unity of people and harmony and the concern of the citizens were felt. The day before yesterday in Dugo Selo on Martin Breg where i live, a light earthquake hit me around 6:28 am, everything shook slightly and today around 6:15 am a short earthquake, and around 6:27 am it shook, but in short, good luck. A team will gather with me, so we will go and help the people in Petrinja in our own way. The whole country shaked.

    Luckily there was not many injured and killed people as it could have been. There was another big earthquaqe in that same area the day before (5.0 the main one, 4.7 and 4.1 aftershocks) from which some of buildings were damaged and people were already out of their homes and city so I believe it was the reason for low deaths..also luckily firefighters, ambulance, military, HGSS and redcross were in the city at that time just because of that earthquake the day before so their reaction was really fast.
    Obviousely it is scarry for everyone and I feel so sorry for people affected by it. I live more than 200km away from epicenter and I felt it. I just hope that no one is still stuck in the ruins and that we won’t have more deaths from it.
