There were a number of witnesses on the island of Krk who felt the quake.

“It shook the room and space around me and it lasted approximately 5 Seconds,” a witness in Njivice on the island of Krk said.

“Scary sound, like a bomb hit or thunder,” another said.

Since yesterday’s earthquake, which struck 19 kilometers south east of Rijeka, just 6 kilometers from Hreljin, there have been a series of smaller shakes in the Rijeka and Kvarner area.

An earthquake measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale hit last night at 10:42, whilst new ones (2.9 and 2.2) were recorded at 4:04 and 6:24 this morning.
