Just 11 minutes ago, a 4.3-magnitude earthquake struck near Sisak, City of Sisak, Sisak-Moslavina, Croatia. The tremor was recorded early afternoon on Saturday 24 July 2021 at 3:43 pm local time, at a shallow depth of 10 km below the surface.
The event was filed by the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.3 earthquake as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Jazvenik (pop. 150) located 1 km from the epicenter, Petrinja (pop. 13,900) 7 km away, and Sisak (pop. 35,700) 7 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
