Click on the picture to go to the B92 article

Serbian interior minister Dacic declared that 310 structures (mostly houses) have been declared uninhabitable.

B92, a Serbia news site wrote the following article (small excerpt below) – click here for the entire article.

1,130 structures have been inspected over the past few days, and specified that private homes account for 90 percent of the 4,000 structures damaged in the powerful earthquake.
Experts from the CIP have been sent to Kraljevo to speed up the reconstruction process.
Building material and 17 drinking water tank trucks have been sent to the area in order to normalize the situation as quickly as possible.
The next stage in the relief effort is to restore houses and other residential structures asap.
All Interior Ministry employees will give their one-day earnings to charity to help their colleagues in Kraljevo.

EUR 920,000 in aid will be set aside from the Ministry’s emergency funds to repair the facilities damaged in the earthquake that hit Kraljevo early on Wednesday, killing two people and damaging around 4,000 structures.
“The Kraljevo hospital will be restored first, followed by public infrastructure facilities such as schools, daycare centers, health care facilities etc,” Kalanović told reporters during a visit to the hospital.

Dačić said that around 1,130 structures have been inspected over the past two days, and specified that private homes account for 90 percent of the 4,000 structures damaged in the powerful earthquake. 

The minister said that experts from the CIP traffic institute in Belgrade have been sent to Kraljevo to speed up the reconstruction process.

He stated that members of the Interior Ministry’s Sector for Emergency Situations have been on the ground and helping the citizens from the moment the earthquake struck.

Dačić commended the residents of Kraljevo saying there have been no incidents in the last two days that would require police intervention.

According to him, building material and 17 drinking water tank trucks have been sent to the area in order to normalize the situation as quickly as possible.

Dačić pointed out that the next stage in the relief effort is to restore houses and other residential structures as soon as possible.

He reminded that the earthquake also damaged the homes of police officers, and said the Interior Ministry will help with the repairs.

Dačić added that all Interior Ministry employees will give their one-day earnings to charity to help their colleagues in Kraljevo.

Also today, Serbian Minister for the National Investment Plan (NIP) Verica Kalanović announced Friday that RSD 100mn (some EUR 920,000) in aid will be set aside from the Ministry’s emergency funds to repair the facilities damaged in the earthquake that hit Kraljevo early on Wednesday, killing two people and damaging around 4,000 structures.

“The Kraljevo hospital will be restored first, followed by public infrastructure facilities such as schools, daycare centers, health care facilities etc,” Kalanović told reporters during a visit to the hospital.

She announced that the project designers will be chosen as early as next week and that project documents should be completed by the end of the year, while the projects will be realized in 2011.

At least 82 people injured in moderate Iran earthquake

Landscape in Lorestan province, where the earthquake took place - Image via Wikipedia

UPDATE 17:11 UTC
Number of injured people climbs to 104 – severe damage to residential houses
Xinhua news reports : At least 104 people were injured in a 4.9-magnitude earthquake that hit Iran’s western province of Lorestan.
The quake was followed by several minor aftershocks, causing severe damage to residential buildings and some houses experienced power cuts, according to the report.
Twenty-six of the injured remained in hospital, while others were released after treatment.

Earthquake Report comment :
At least 82 people have been injured in Do-rud, when a M 4.9 very shallow earthquake occurred during the  morning  (at 07:22 AM local time).
Based on Iranian Seismological center reporting, the epicenter of the earthquake was near Do-Rud and Razan, although some smaller villages are closer to the epicenter.
From the very beginning Earthquake-Report.com colored this earthquake ORANGE as we are aware (based on previous Iranian earthquakes) that even smaller magnitudes if they occur near cities, can cause a lot of misery like damage, injuries, etc.
As most of the houses are not build earthquake-proof, we always fear for the worst.
Do-rud (also written as Doorud and Do rud, has a population of 114,395 inhabitants)
