Early Monday morning, a shallow, magnitude-4.4 earthquake hit the Los Angeles area, shaking slumbering California residents out of their sleep.

Oh, and shaking up surprised reporters too.

During a live broadcast, anchors Chris Schauble and Megan Henderson were jolted to attention when the seconds-long quake occurred. With the best of shocked faces, Schauble stops in his tracks, lifts his hand and exclaims, “Earthquake! We’re having an earthquake!”

Both anchors  jump to the ground for cover. Fortunately, there were no reports of injuries or damage. The quake was felt over a large swath of Southern California, but especially in the Westside and Valley.

According to the LA Times, a 2.7 quake, likely an aftershock, was recorded at 7:23 a.m. in the same area.

As for Schauble, he’s doing just fine. No really, we promise. He’s even being a super great sport about the hilarious faces he made on air and promptly changed his Twitter profile picture to his “surprised” look:
