News anchor’s face when LA earthquake hit is priceless

An earthquake rolled across Los Angeles Monday morning, and the shaking surprised two KTLA broadcasters while they were live on air.

The cameras caught the two anchors reacting before they took cover underneath the desk.

“It appears to have stopped,” anchor Chris Schauble said returning out from under the desk.

The quake’s magnitude was 4.4 and it was centered 15 miles west-northwest of the downtown civic center, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

USGS seismologist Robert Graves called it a typical Southern California quake of moderate magnitude and said expectations would be that damage would be slight, if it occurred at all.

Los Angeles police and fire officials said there were no immediate reports of damage.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
