It's just weather. Get over it. …
12th January: Heaviest flood on record in the Daintree River, the water rose 40 feet, washed bullocks and a large quantity of goods and produce into the ocean, and drowned some men.
19th February: Floods in the north and west higher than those of 1864; much damage done to parts of the Western Railway.
And drowned some men?
Well yeh, y'had to be there.
It was awful when we woke and saw the flow
But you grabbed ahold yer dearest
And you took her to the nearest
And then went back
(When you could)
To make repair.
Mag. 8, Zagreb.
According to the Zagreb Meteorological Station data, the earthquake struck at 07:33, and was followed by a series of tremors of smaller intensity.
Contemporary records say that 3,800 outgoing tickets were sold at the Zagreb Main Station within the first 24 hours of the initial earthquake, as many locals sought to leave the city for Vienna, Ljubljana, Graz, and other Austro-Hungarian cities in the vicinity of Zagreb.
There isn't much to say of the magnitude that day or the people who were left without an home.
Just that thousands went away from the thousands who must stay
For the way it was is different to how it is.
Where disaster strikes and when
You leave or build again.
All it takes is time and men
Until the next time is now, this is this.
