‘Earthquake!’: Watch These News Anchors Take Cover Live On-Air as Quake Hits Los Angeles

Two KTLA-TV anchors ducked under their desks live on the air Monday morning as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake rumbled through Los Angeles.

“Earthquake,” anchor Chris Schauble said. “We are having an earthquake.”

The two anchors then sought cover under their desk until the conclusion of the shaking.

“That felt very strong,” co-anchor Megan Henderson added.
