More than 4,000 houses damaged in Serbia quake

Authorities say more than 4,000 houses have been reported damaged in an earthquake this week in Serbia that killed two people and injured dozens.
Police official Predrag Maric says 22 elderly people have been moved to a municipal center while many people have sought temporary housing with friends and neighbors.
Maric said Thursday that experts will assess the damage before reconstruction work can start in and around the central town of Kraljevo.
The 5.3-magnitude earthquake hit the area early Wednesday, sending people fleeing from their homes in panic. The tremor was felt throughout the country.
Authorities say schools in Kraljevo remain closed Thursday. There still is no drinking water but electricity has been mostly restored.
