News anchors always appear cool under pressure, nobly reporting stories of tragedy and joy with equal composure.

That's why it's really fun to watch them freak out on live TV.

When a magnitude-4.4 earthquake hit L.A. this morning during a local KTLA broadcast, host Chris Schauble pointed at the ceiling, looked directly at the camera and said "Earthquake! We're having an earthquake!"

Then he and his co-host Megan Henderson dove under the newsdesk.

They emerged seconds later to say everything was fine and, of course, find out more about the disturbance.

It looked like a scary moment and we applaud their quick reflexes! After all, it serves as a good reminder for viewers of what to do in an earthquake. But, since everyone was ultimately safe, it also made for a good laugh.
