A strong earthquake hit the city of Petrinja in central Croatia on Tuesday, causing serious material damage and the death of at least 5 people.

The mayor of that town, Darinko Dumbovic, confirmed that one of the deceased was a 12-year-old girl.

The 6.4-magnitude earthquake occurred 10 kilometers deep and was also felt in the Croatian capital, Zagreb, and other areas of Central Europe.

“Petrinja is in ruins. There are dead, injured, and missing. There is no house that has not been damaged. Ambulances cannot reach all places. It is chaos,” said Dumbovic.
