Aftershocks rattle central Serbia upsetting residents following this week's earthquake

By The Associated Press (CP) – Nov 5, 2010
BELGRADE, Serbia — Authorities say that a series of aftershocks reaching 4.4 magnitude has rattled central Serbia, upsetting residents after an earthquake that killed two people and wounded 50.
Seismologists said Friday a number of small tremors shook the town of Kraljevo and its surroundings throughout the night. They say the strongest tremor hit late Thursday.
Kraljevo town authorities say the tremors sent people fleeing from their homes in panic. The Tanjug news agency says many people spent the night in their cars. It says several people were lightly injured.
The area 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Belgrade was hit by a 5.3 magnitude earthquake early Wednesday. Some 4,000 houses have been reported damaged by the quake.
