Two Moderate Earthquakes Jolt Glina Area

ZAGREB, 13 Nov, 2021 - Two moderate earthquakes jolted the Glina area of central Croatia shortly after 11pm on Friday, the Croatian Seismological Service reported.

Their epicentres were four kilometres north-northeast of Glina, about 70 kilometres south of Zagreb.

The first tremor, measuring 3.2 on the Richter scale, was registered at 11.09pm and was followed by a magnitude 3.5 tremor at 11.21pm.

The Banovina region was devastated by a string of earthquakes in late December 2020. The disaster struck on 28 December 2020, when three tremors rocked the region, measuring 5.0, 4.7 and 4.1 on the Richter scale. They were a precursor to a 6.2 earthquake that hit the following day, leaving extensive property damage and seven people killed. The region was shaken by over 900 aftershocks over the next two and a half months.
