News doesn’t get more break­ing than this. 

This morn­ing, when a 4.4 mag­nitude earth­quake shook Los Angeles, the an­chors at KTLA 5 news lost their usu­al on-air even keel. 

“Earth­quake, we’re hav­ing an earth­quake,” an­chor Chris Scahuble shouted be­fore hid­ing un­der the news­desk. His re­ac­tion this morn­ing is mak­ing the vir­al rounds. And it’s easy to see why. It’s near price­less. Watch the full video here.

Al­though, while start­ling, this morn­ing’s shake didn’t cause much de­struc­tion, re­ports the Los Angeles Times.  “There were no re­port of in­jur­ies or dam­age.”
