At 9:15 a new earthquake was felt in Croatia.

According to the first estimates of the EMSC, the earthquake was 3.5 on the Richter scale. The epicenter was 18 kilometers west of Sisak.

The EMSC is recording another earthquake. At around 9 o'clock, there was a small earthquake of 2 Richter, and the epicenter was 21 kilometers southeast of Varaždin.

Some people from the earthquake-affected area spent the second night outside.

"Occasionally we set cars on fire, I am accompanied by my son, grandson and a neighbor who is alone, so she is with us. We stayed and waited for the containers. The house was demolished. We hope for the help of good people," a man told Index.hr.
