The spokesman Mladen Pavić told Hina that of those latest 142 containers, 80 were distributed to the city of Petrinja.

So far 1,262 containers have been set up in Sisak-Moslavina County, he said, pointing out a satisfactory pace of the implementation of the project of the container settlement in Petrinja.

That settlement has already 46 housing containers and 81 containers will have been installed until Thursday.

Pavić said that the project envisaged a total of 117 containers, with some of them being used as prefab houses and some for businesses.

On Friday, the Caritas Croatia humanitarian organisation signed an agreement with the Donji Kraljevec-based Tehnix company on the provision of another 100 housing containers for quake victims, the IKA Catholic news agency reported. 

The delivery of the first 100 modular housing containers which Caritas Croatia bought from the Tehnix company for the people of the Banovina region, who lost their homes in the 29 December earthquake, started immediately after the disaster.

The spokesman Pavić told Hina also that experts and professors would continue analysing sinkholes and the terrain in Mečenčani.

The further recommendations and instructions for the local population will be based on the findings and opinions of those experts, he explained.

Local cattle farmers will be given grants to cope with the current situation.

Aftershocks which keep rocking the Petrinja area are causing new damage, mainly sinkholes, and since they are close to family homes, some people could be evacuated to safe locations.
