Watch KTLA Anchors React to Earthquake During Broadcast


The Los Angeles area was rocked by a 4.4-magnitude earthquake early on Monday morning, but while most people freaked out privately at home or in their cars on their way to work … KTLA anchor Chris Schauble‘s reaction was broadcast on live television.

As his co-anchor Megan Henderson began to deliver a news story, Chris froze, pointed to the ceiling and yelled, “Earthquake! We’re having an earthquake!” — and then dove under his desk.


At least Chris can laugh at himself! He posted his hilarious reaction on Twitter shortly after it went viral.

Even KTLA’s Entertainment department got in on the fun! They made a photo collage of Chris’ best facial expressions and posted it on Twitter:
