Zagreb Earthquake (General)

Imagine living at virus fever pitch then copping a sizeable earthquake in the midst of it to really jangle your nerves. That's what happened in Zagreb, Croatia. A 5.4M struck a couple of days ago. One death - some injuries - lots of damage to a beautiful old city. Got some friends there riding out the aftershocks - as we know it's not just a one-off event - there are all the surrounding quakes and the worry around where it's going.
Didn't realise they even had earthquakes there but see a 6.3 struck Zagreb in 1880. Hopefully it doesn't get up to that.

This is one of my concerns here in Japan -- a major earthquake. It could happen at any moment and it would be a nightmare.

My friend is still without gas - so no heating or hot water. The electricity also went out. Was thinking last week what would be the next level up from now in terms of the collapse of civilisation - it'd have to be the electricity going out - so they actually experienced it for a while.

Reports are that the aftershocks have subsided in Zagreb so that's good news.

It's almost comical that at the height of one hysteria a large earthquake hits. Both of us know how jittery that can make you at the best of times. Hopefully you can hold off in Japan.
