So a medium earthquake can be fun and exciting. A big earthquake sucks. Two in a row suck more.
Zagreb Croatia (and the surrounding areas) have had way too much!
A 6.4 is very huge. You can see the devastation online - even though we haven't heard much on the news here (too Trump-All-The-Time!) But in investigating this, it gets much much worse.
First, the 6.4 was PROCEEDED by a 5.0, which is pretty damn big itself. Then it was followed quickly by a 4.2. Now a 4.2 isn't all that big, but when the buildings have been shaken by 2 much larger previous earthquakes, with no time for shoring them up - that's very bad. Shit falls.
Only to find out that I have been in a quarantined bubble. Turns out Zagreb had 3 large earthquakes last year (albeit none as big as the 6.4). Damage was extensive then too.
