Small tremor of magnitude 2.9 just reported 20 km southwest of Sisak, Croatia

2.9 quake 20 km southwest of Sisak, Croatia, Oct 1, 2022 5:52 am (GMT +2)
2.9 quake 20 km southwest of Sisak, Croatia, Oct 1, 2022 5:52 am (GMT +2)
A magnitude 2.9 earthquake near Sisak, Sisak-Moslavina, Croatia, was reported only 17 minutes ago by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), considered one of the key international agencies that monitor seismic activity worldwide. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 2 km beneath the epicenter early morning on Saturday, October 1st, 2022, at 5:52 am local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by Hungary's Seismological Observatory (Hungarian National Seismological Network), which listed it as a magnitude 3.8 earthquake. Other agencies reporting the same quake include the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake at magnitude 3.7, and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at magnitude 3.7.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Brnjeuška (pop. 13) located 1 km from the epicenter, and Glina (pop. 4,700) 7 km away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Petrinja (pop. 15,700) located 13 km from the epicenter, Mošćenica (pop. 2,500) 17 km away, Sisak (pop. 35,700) 20 km away, Gvozd (pop. 1,100) 24 km away, and Budaševo (pop. 1,700) 24 km away. In Vrnograč (pop. 6,900, 28 km away), Podzvizd (pop. 6,700, 31 km away), and Zagreb (pop. 699,000, 53 km away), the quake was probably not felt.
