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.
