Of course, Danielle isn't the first anchor whose reaction has gone viral. Poor Chris Schauble of KTLA got quite a shock when an earthquake rocked LA back in March. We'd probably hide under the desk if something shook our office, too!
As a 4.4. magnitude earthquake struck in the Los Angeles area in March, reporter Rich Demuro was live on the air. He stayed incredibly calm, saying, "Oh, we're having an earthquake here. Oh, it's a big one! Wow. Goodness gracious."

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:
