5.3 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Croatia’s Capital, Zagreb, One Of The Strongest Ever Witnessed, Causes Major Damages

Croatia’s capital has been rocked on Sunday, by a huge 5.3 magnitude earthquake, less than 24-hours after it was locked down amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The quake struck North of the city of Zagreb, leaving a trail devastation in its wake, with Nurses from the city’s University Hospital Centre, seen fleeing the crumbling building with newborn babies in their arms.

The devastating quake destroyed buildings and homes, and left at least one person in critical condition.
A 15-year-old girl is reportedly in critical condition, and several people injured.

Zarko Rasic, the Head of the Zagreb Emergency Medicine Institute, said: “An ambulance team took to the field and found under a collapsed building, a child who no longer showed signs of life.”

However she was taken to hospital, and is receiving treatment.

The quake was also felt across the Western Balkans, with an initial reading of 6.0.

A witness told Al Jazeera: “It lasted over 10 seconds. By far the strongest I have ever felt.”

The first ripples came around 6am, which was then followed by the 5.3 magnitude blast North of the city.
