The epicentre was about 110 km north west of my location, near the town of Kraljevo and its magnitude reportedly reached 5.6 on the Richter scale, killing two people and injuring about 50 others .
Only being considered a MODERATE earthquake (which can "cause major damage to poorly constructed buildings over small regions. At most slight damage to well-designed buildings) it nevertheless killed two people and injured about 50 others .
At the moment of the quake I was playing a computer game with my friend Nikola, at first I thought a truck shook the floor ... but there was no sound of a heavy vehicle nearby and the floor did not stop shaking. As we ran out of the building my heart was racing - we have been right in the center of town, surrounded by high buildings.
Local media report that no aftershocks are being expected.
