They “are on their way to Croatia or will be in the coming days,” the Commission noted, adding that “Slovenia delivered supplementary housing containers to Croatia on 11 January.”

The same day of the devastating tremor in the Petrinja, Glina and Sisak area, Croatia activated the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, requesting winter tents for six to eight persons, lamps, light towers, electrical heaters, folding beds, sleeping bags and housing containers.

Most of the assistance arrived within 24 hours.

“Once more, I would like to thank all EU Member States for their prompt response to the earthquake. The overwhelming response of 15 EU Member States and 1 Participating State helping the Croatian people in times of need is a tangible example of EU solidarity,” said Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič.

He visited Zagreb and the area affected two days after the quake.
