ZAGREB, May 13 (Hina) – Croatia’s Seismological Service recorded a magnitude 3.9 earthquake on Wednesday with the epicentre 10 km southwest of the coastal town of Crikvenica.

The quake hit at 11:09 a.m. in a less populated area in the Crikvenica hinterland, so no damage is expected, Croatian seismologists said.

The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre reported earlier that a quake measuring 3.6 on the Richter scale struck the Rijeka area around 11 a.m.. 

Some of the witness reports to EMSC:

“A loud thud, and it shook a little”

“There was a loud thunder-like noise, lasted around 5 seconds, and there was light trembling”

“Strong shake and sound, lasted for 3-4 seconds”

“In Crikvenica, it shook well”
