Slovenia temporarily shut its Krsko Nuclear Power Plant on Tuesday following a strong earthquake that rocked neighboring Croatia, APA reports citing Teletrader.

According to a spokesperson, the closure was decided on out of precaution.

Earlier, a 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit the Croatian town of Petrinja, causing damage to many buildings. The tremor was also felt in Slovenia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. The quake comes just a day after a 5.2-magnitude earthquake struck the same region in Croatia.
