The Civil Protection Directorate reported on Sunday that the relevant analyses show that Petrinja was shifted southeast and Sisak eastward.

Glina, the third city most affected by the 29 December earthquake and aftershocks, was shifted by 10 centimetres northwest. Also, the area in which the city of Glina is located, sank 10 centimetre.

These first official data will be used for the activities pertaining to the reconstruction of geodetic baselines and for the homogenisation of surveys.

The devastating quake killed seven victims and caused extensive damage. Preliminary mapping prepared on the basis on satellite images provided by the European Space Agency showed in early January that the disaster caused shifts of soil with the amplitude of up to 70 centimetres. The biggest shift was then registered in the forest area near the settlements of Slana, Glinska Poljana and Gora.
