Earthquakes in Croatia

Hello everyone!!

Three days in a row we had earthquakes here in central part of Croatia.

It all started on Monday at 6:28 AM local time, when an earthquakee of 5.2 magnitude hit. The epicenter was near towns Petrinja and Sisak, around 50 kilometres SE of the capital Zagreb (around 25 kilometres from where I live). Earthquakes continued through the day.

Yesterday at 12:19 PM local time, an earthquake of 6.4 magnitude in the epicenter hit and it was devastating for cities Petrinja, Sisak, Glina and places around.

Many families lost their homes and there were victims and injured too. City Petrinja is totally devastated, as well as some places around. County hospital in Sisak is unusable and all patients had to be transferred to the capital Zagreb. Heartbreaking...


My family and I are safe and well. Thank you all who contacted me to check on how we all are. 

We did feel the earthquake quite. Everything was shaking and it was scary, but luckily we didn't suffer any damages. 

This morning earthquakes continued. First one at 6:15 AM local time, magnitude 4.7, and then at 6:26 AM, magnitude 4.8, Not a fun wake up at all. Minor earthquakes continued through the whole day.

This is a hard time for all of us in Croatia and we all try to help as we can to families that lost everything in a second of time.

Jane of Jane's Doodles drew a beautiful digital stamp to sell for $5 to raise money for all who are in need and suffering the effects of earthquakes in Croatia. She will donate raised money to Croatia's Red Cross. If you can, please join this noble action. You can find more details on Jane's Doodles blog (here). Thank you for the bottom of my heart. 

In this scary and hard time, I took a break from posting my 12 Days of Christmas Series here on my blog, as I can't concentrate on anything at the moment. I will continue with my series as soon as I get ready to do it. Thank you for understanding.

I'm sending you all big hugs.



  1. This is so scary, Milka. I am sorry to read this horrible news. I have never experienced an earthquake so I can only imagine how frightening it must be. I will check out Jane's blog and make a donation. Thank you and I hope all remains well with you.

  2. I did see the news about the devastating earthquake on the Dutch news tonight, but I had no idea you lived so close by. I’m happy to hear you and your loved ones are alright. We have experienced several earthquakes ourselves since we moved to Crete, some of them quite strong, but fortunately newer buildings are built to withstand even strong earthquakes.
    I will check out Jane’s digi tomorrow. Take care!
