The author presents a brief overview of Jutarnji list and Obzor dailies and Hrvatska Straža weekly from Zagreb, as well as Koprivnica’s Podravske novine weekly newspaper about 1938 earthquake, which was strongly felt in Podravina and to some extent in northwestern Croatia and some neighboring countries. The earthquake caused material damage to buildings and concern among the population. Zagreb’s daily Jutarnji List dedicated full attention to the earthquake in Podravina and the greater area, while the Obzor covered the earthquake in just a few brief statements. On the other hand, the earthquake was quite extensively covered by the dailies, Zagreb’s Hrvatska Straža and Koprivnica’s Podravske novine.
