How Long Will Zagreb Earthquakes Last? Seismologist Kresimir Kuk Weighs in

Kresimir Kuk, a Croatian seismologist who has done his part on multiple occasions in explaining the science behind the earthquakes we’ve all been feeling on and off for what seems like forever now, has sought to explain just how long these smaller but still rather frequent Zagreb earthquakes might last.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatian Seismologist Kresimir Kuk was a recent guest on the N1 New Day show where he was asked to comment on a series of earthquakes that have hit the Republic of Croatia over the last few months, the strongest of which have been in Central Croatia.

Commenting on a series of weaker Zagreb earthquakes that have been recorded over recent days, Kuk said that this is a very normal occurrence.

“This is an epicentral area that was very active last year after a strong earthquake, and a week ago we recorded two earthquakes that were felt in the wider area of ​​the city. We’re again recording weaker seismic activity in the Zagreb area, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to us, it shows that the ground hasn’t yet completely calmed down. It’s been a little over a year since that initial series and these are merely the earthquakes that follow that series,” Kuk said.

When asked how long these smaller Zagreb earthquakes will last, Kuk said that we can always expect weaker earthquakes in the wider area, because we’re in a seismically active are anyway.

”We shouldn’t be surprised or afraid of earthquakes of these magnitudes. A series of earthquakes should never come as a surprise. So far, we’ve only two earthquakes that were felt macroseismically and they were weaker ones, this truly isn’t an unusual activity,” assured Kresimir Kuk.
