An earthquake struck last night in Serbia at 2:00 AM. We slept through the earthquake, but most of my friends were woken up by a shaking bed here in Belgrade. It was a moderate (5.3 on the Richter Scale) quake, with the epicenter being about 75 miles southwest of the city. There was a lot of damage in the city of Kraljevo, where 2 people were killed and 50 people injured. They also lost water, electricity and there was much debris in the streets.

I love the two web sites with earthquake information. The world’s finest is the USGS website and the local, The European-Mediterranean Seismological Center, is also good.
