The devastating earthquake happened on December 29th 2020 and heavily destroyed Sisak-Moslavina County in Croatia; mainly Cities of Sisak, Petrinja and Glina. Cataclysmic earthquake, ranked at 6.4 on Richter scale, had an epicentre near City of Petrinja. 80% od the City of Glina was destroyed and most of the City of Sisak and Petrinja. We feel emotionally destroyed furthermore because now we have 50 medium and small earthquakes every day, ranging from 1.5 to 4.9 on the Richter scale. By now, we had 7 casulties, and dozen of people injured. Just by saying this, we are petrified and mentally, very exhausted.
Building has cracked on four places and imagine, outer walls are 70cm thick. All of the chimneys have cracked trough the whole building and have collapsed and damaged the roof completely. Some of the chimneys have penetrated the roof and fallen into the building. Hallway on the 1st floor has detached from the building and it is "hanging" and leaning to outer left side, and it is also cracked in numerous places. Building has somehow separated in a few places with huge cracks. In our apartment, we have 43 cracks that we counted so far, and all of the load-bearing walls have cracked completely. Massive damage has happened in our bedroom where the roof has collapsed on our bed where we sleep. Also, all of the windows have cracks from inside to the outer wall.
We don't have the money to rebuild our home. We don't expect that the building will be built again by the government,
I'm very sad to be writing this, as this is a situation I never thought I would be. My only home was destroyed, and I, as a person that was previously helping others, am now asking for complete strangers to help me. Is there someone that understands my situation and wants to help my family and me? Are there still people with kindness in their heart to help us with a small donation? :)
