The Moment of the Earthquake:

Petrinja and Sisak today – empty streets, eerie silence and ruins

The day after the earthquake, Petrinja looks like a ghost town, as the scene of a post-apocalyptic film. There is almost no one on the streets, the population has been evacuated, and the only place where there is any life is the Red Cross checkpoints, where basic necessities are distributed to people. Excavators and other heavy machinery can be seen on the roads.
