Top European Commission and European Council officials said their institutions are following the situation in Croatia and will help the country after Zagreb was hit by a series of earthquakes on Sunday morning.

European Commission Crisis Management Commissioner Janez Lenarcic said that the Emergency Response Coordination Centre was in contact with Croatia's authorities.

European Council President Charles Michel sent a message of support to Croatia, saying the EU is willing to help."My thoughts are with the people of Croatia following the devastating earthquake this morning. I just assured (Croatian PM) Andrej Plenkovic that the EU stands with our friends and is ready to offer help and assistance," Michel said on Twitter.

The three strong quakes rocked Zagreb and the wider area in the morning. The first tremor with 5.3 magnitude was the strongest. There were two subsequent tremors with magnitudes 5.0 and 3.7. According to first reports, a child in Zagreb was severely injured, and some residents remained trapped in their homes.

Damage is substantial.
