In only five days, from November 3 to 8, there were 237 different strength earthquakes.

In Kraljevo area around 40 schools did not get any serious damage, and will be able to hold classes Monday, but there are about dozen that are not safe to be in. This was stated after the late Saturday evening meeting of the emergency situations headquarters.

Dacic: It is most important not to leave people on their own

Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said in Kraljevo on Sunday that the repair of the facilities damaged by the earthquake which recently hit the central Serbia city and the surrounding area represents a big test for Serbia, stressing that is most important not to leave the people on their own after what had happened.

Deputy Prime Minister Dacic stressed that it is most important to make sure the facilities are restored to function as soon as possible and that none of the citizens remains homeless.

He visited a cultural center and a primary school in one part of Kraljevo, where members of the Ministry of Interior (MUP) department for emergency situations are taking part in the reconstruction.

Dacic said that MUP members, including those from the regular police and the gendarmerie, rather than just those from the competent department, have successfully fulfilled the set tasks in scope of repairs of the earthquake-caused damages and help to the people.

The minister said that more than 1,600 MUP members have come to assist the Kraljevo citizens, including members from the cities of Novi Pazar, Uzice, Sabac, Valjevo and Leskovac.

Dacic praised the gendarmerie squad for helping the Kraljevo people, and also commended the students of the Crime Police Academy in Belgrade, who had come to offer their help to the city on a volunteer basis.

The minister said that a total of 558 buildings which include the places of living of the Kraljevo police employess have been damaged and that the sum needed for their repairs is RSD 51 million, pointing out that RSD 30 million has already been allocated for this purpose and will start to be paid on Monday.

According to Dacic, all MUP employees will give away a day's wage as aid to their colleagues.

Kraljevo Mayor Ljubisa Simovic said that more than 16,000 facilities have been reported as damaged by the earthquake, adding that the expert committees have inspected about 9,800 buildings until late Saturday.

Simovic said that it is already possible to estimate that 20 to 30 percent of the facilities affected by the earthquake are due for demolition.
