Not the morning after...

This is an old photo of Zagreb Cathedral, taken on a peacfull morning few years ago...
We had a strong earthquake yesterday (and about 30 weak ones after- some felt-some not) in the middle of Corona crisis. It hit on early sunday morning waking us up. We didnt't really know what to do: do we go out to Corona, or stay in for another earthquake. I must say I am still shaking. Things were flying from shelfs, and within closets, drawers opening and closing, refrigerater and some cabinets moved... We live in house and we are fine, but my mom lives in center and damage there is substantial. Luckilly not at her place.
Damage is huge in the center. We don't even now all. Zagreb is an old city, and many important buildings were seriously damaged.
The worst part is that many hospitals had serious damages, Entire birth clinique had to be evacuated: moms, newborn babies, even bebies in incubators..
I did not want to put here an earthquake photo. I don' t have any of my own, and I want this to stay my happy place, but you can find plenty on internet: just google images "potres u zagrebu"
I keep thinking that I am cought in a bad catastrophy movie...

That's terrible news, Martina. Stay safe.

I agree entirely, staying positive is the best way to deal with this crisis. I've not been to Zagreb but this architecture reminds me of happy vacations in Croatia.

@laroque Thank you. Who knows when will I be able to walk our streets again. Life will come back to streets as soon as Corona goes away, but the rebuilding will take forever I am afraid...

I can't begin to image the shock of this added devastation to your part of the world Martina, while we are all locked down with this corona virus. Take care of yourself and I hope you do fine joy in connecting with us here on 365 again.

Lovely to see you back Martina. So sorry to hear your terrible news, you really don't need an earthquake on top of coronavirus. This is a wonderful photo. I would love to see your beautiful city some day.
