Meteorologist reacts like a pro when quake hits during forecast

Meteorologist Reacts When Quake Hits During Weathercast

A 4.2 magnitude earthquake was centered near KOCO 5 News in Oklahoma City Monday morning. The epicenter of the earthquake was near Choctaw, about 13 miles away from northeast Oklahoma City.

The earthquake struck when KOCO 5 Meteorologist Danielle Dozier was doing weather on the morning news -- and her reaction was pretty incredible. Not only did she stay calm, but she actually apologized for her reaction and got rick back to the forecast!

'Woah! Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. This is live on air. That was way bigger than what we just felt earlier, that was well over 4.0 magnitude, I can tell you that much right now. Let me finish this forecast and then ... forgive me. That one actually sacred me, that's how powerful that one was.'

Yes, that's right: Dozier actually apologized for allowing the quake to interrupt her forecast. Talk about reacting well under pressure. She may just be the most dedicated (and calm) meteorologist out there.

Of course, totally losing it during an earthquake is understandable, too. Check out other reporter reactions to earthquakes:

It's interesting. If you don't agree, why are you on here talking about it?

Why would any agree that a tiny rattle that happened there would be news worthy? Now if they want newsworthy.....then talk about tornadoes and leave quakes to the west coast.

These areas never had quakes before. Now quakes are becoming more common in Oklahoma as with the increase in fracking.

No, there have been quakes east of OKC all along. I remember them while living there in the early 1950's.
There is a fault line or two there that is probably slipping because of new fracking, but none have been very serious. So... what do you want, a little shakin or no gas & oil at all???

Lol, poppycock. Actually Oklahoma has always has quakes, I should know, I lived there most of my life. The Nemaha fault runs all the way through Oklahoma and up as far as Nebraska. Don't believe everything you hear.

I lived in California. You want to hear about quakes....plz that wasn't worth the keystrokes. And yes they do get quakes in Oklahoma and up the middle of the country. Quakes are not restricted to the west coast.

With the right guy, that knows his gal, any woman becomes a "screamer"

"Make me scream..dare you." Best line Ever.

The only way I could make my ex wife scream was to wipe my ---- on the curtains.

She's acting arrogant and cocky just like most of the Meteorologists on TV.

"got rick back to the forecast" --"rick" should be "right."
"Woah" -- should be "whoa"
"That one actually sacred me" -- "sacred" should be "scared."

Aye Alice, the never off-duty English teacher. I noticed that as well. Point: don't comment if you can't spell,especially if you are being critical.
