News anchors have shortest earthquake freak-out ever

News Anchors Freak Out After Earthquake Hits During TV Morning Show

OKLAHOMA CITY - An earthquake rattled central Oklahoma at 7:41 am Tuesday morning, and Emily Sutton and Lacey Lett were on the air on KAUT broadcasting when the quake hit.

While the earthquake is the real news here, we're also pretty obsessed with the moment when Lacey and Emily realize that their studio is rumbling. They were worried for about two seconds -- and then quickly rebounded like pros. Yes, there was even some dancing.

Check out the hilarious photos (and GIFs) below:

According to the US Geological Survey the quake measured 4.2. The Oklahoma Geological Survey is calling the quake a 4.3. The epicenter of this quake SSW of Guthrie, in the Liberty Lake area of southern Logan County.

Of course Emily and Lacey aren't the first anchors to report during an earthquake. You probably recall KTLA anchor Chris Schauble's incredible (and incredibly viral) reaction when a quake hit back in March. This GIF says it all:

They would have REALLY wigged during the 1989 San Francisco temblor.

Loma Prieta.

The ball game was in San Francisco, as was the collapsed 880 freeway approach to the Oakland Bay Bridge, but the quake was centered near Santa Cruz.

Hi! That was the world series game who's last TV shot was of Hank Aaron grabbing his armrests, gasping as the signal went black for the game.

Wait till they experience a 6 pointer. These two goofy broads would be a hoot.

Actually, the two ladies handled it pretty well from Oklahoma City compared to the anchor man on Channel 5 in Los Angeles. His facial expressions say it all.

That is because those two ladies didn't handle anything. Let em go through one 6.5 or higher and they'll be crapping their underwear.
