As Vecernji list/Danijel Prerad writes, according to this morning’s updated ArcGIS data, serious damage caused by the Sisak-Moslavina earthquake back in December last year was reported on 37,679 buildings, of which 29,262 were inspected by staticians. Due to that damage, 3,456 buildings were given a red sticker, and due to external influences, another 346 objects can now be removed.

2,913 facilities remain temporarily unusable until a more thorough inspection can take place, and urgent interventions are needed for an additional 3,493 buildings that also cannot be used for now.

Only 644 of the inspected buildings remain without damage, and the more than 18,400 buildings have received a green ”safe for use” sticker, a statement from Sisak-Moslavina County read.

As of today, the office of the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Property has been opened in earthquake-stricken Sisak at the following address: Ivana Kukuljevica Sakcinskog 1 (the Fina building).

At the aforementioned location, Sisak residents can now submit their requests for property reconstruction and renovation. On Friday and Saturday this week, mobile offices will be present in the settlements of Majur and Grabostani. On those days, mobile office employees will receive requests for the restoration of the damaged facilities in Majur for the area of ​​Majur, Stublje and Gornji Hrastovac, and in Grabostani for the area of ​​Grabostani, Veliki and Mali Krcevo, Svinica, Mala Srednje and Gornje Meminske and Mracaja.

Officers will receive requests and help locals fill out any of the forms and resolve other issues of an administrative nature. Citizens will only be able to initiate the renewal procedure with a system that is directly connected to the cadastre, land register and other official databases by presenting an identity card and filling out a simple form. Requests for the reconstruction of buildings in the area following the Sisak-Moslavina earthquake must be filled in before anything can occur and the most basic information of the applicant will be required.
