  • The quake caused widespread damage in the small town of Petrinja causing several buildings to collapse.

  • Said Petrinja Mayor Darinko Dumbovic, "My town has been completely destroyed. We have dead children. This is like Hiroshima - half of the city no longer exists."

  • Added Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, "The biggest part of central Petrinja is in a red zone, which means that most of the buildings are not usable."

  • The army and nearby hotels are providing shelter to those who lost their homes.
