March 23, 2020 – While all the earthquake media focus has understandably been on Zagreb, TCN intern Janja Sestak reports from the epicenter in Kasina.

While there were many reports about the catastrophic consequences of the earthquakes in the center of Zagreb, few covered real epicenter and its surroundings.

As local citizens are genuinely disappointed in the media and politicians for not giving them any help or coverage, many of them started to send messages and share photos on social media about the conditions after the earthquake. Many of them are witnesses of ruined roofs and chimneys and cracked walls and windows.

“People from Čučerje, Markuševac, and surroundings were sleeping with their clothes and shoes on, in the houses which are no longer habitable. Some people were sleeping in cars on meadows, because of the fear. Nobody answered on those telephone numbers.”

“I am from Markuševac, and yesterday’s events were terrible. The epicenter was 200 meters from my house, which remains untouched, but many homes were destoyed. People don’t have anywhere to go. Yesterday the cathedral was 15 times on TV, which is also a tragedy, but people here are helpless. They are literally crying. Why does nobody cover this?”

People are sleeping in vineyard cottages; they are too scared to stay in the house. Also, they are angry due to the lack of concern for them: “After they resolved the situation with hospitals and when the alternative accommodation was ensured for the people from the center of Zagreb, they must should have come here. Everyone here has damage to their houses, some serious, some not. Not a word about any help to these poor people.”
