"This morning, January 4, 2021, at 7 hours and 49 minutes, seismologists from the Seismological Service of the Republic of Croatia recorded a fairly strong earthquake with the epicenter near Petrinja town," the Seismological Service reported.

The earthquake shook during the show on live television, in which the deputy mayor of Glina, Branka Bakšić Mitić, was also a guest on the phone. She was the first to feel the concussion. "Here he is again," she exclaimed around 7:50, and then the earthquake was felt in the Zagreb studio.

A few minutes later she said it was 4.8 in strength.
