Strongest earthquake to hit Zagreb in 140 years – army on streets to clear roads

By  Mar 22, 2020

Due to the six strong earthquakes that shook Zagreb this morning, an emergency summit was held this morning.

“This morning's earthquakes have been the strongest in the last 140 years. We urge all citizens to exercise caution. For now, we will recommend that everyone be outside the buildings,'' said the Prime Minister, Andrej Plenkovic, after a meeting at the National Library, after which he went on a tour of downtown Zagreb to check on the extent of the damage.

“We will intensify all activities and manage this crisis as well as the coronavirus crisis. We ask all citizens to listen exclusively to the advice,” the Prime Minister emphasized.

He added that the army and all departments of the City of Zagreb have been hired to start clearing the damage in Zagreb and will endeavour to repair the roads as soon as possible.

“We will hire experts to inspect the buildings. No one can now know how badly damaged the buildings are, especially the older ones. There will be a special focus on hospitals,'' added Plenkovic.
