During the early modern age, the earthquakes become a topic of interest for the Habs- burg administration, because the dynasty rule areas with high seismic hazards. The article focuses on the collection and transmission of the news about the earthquakes with a global viewpoint thanks to the structure of the Hispanic Monarchy. In addition to the introduction and conclusions, the essay is formed of three paragraphs. The first part examines the communica- tion system within Hispanic administration; the second presents the formal features of the dis- aster writings. Finally, the last section shows the leitmotifs in the documentation on the earth- quakes.
