Terrifying Moment Newscast Is Interrupted By Southern California Earthquake
News anchors in Los Angeles were left shaken when a powerful earthquake, with a preliminary magnitude of 7.1, struck Southern California on Friday night.
Sara Donchey and Juan Fernandez were live on the air for CBS’ KCAL 9′s evening newscast when the tremors struck. In a video that is going viral, Donchey told viewers that “we are experiencing quite a bit of shaking if you bear with us a moment.”
“We’re making sure nothing is going to come down in the studio here,” she added, before grabbing Fernandez’s arm.
“This is a very strong earthquake,” Donchey continued. “8:21 here and we’re experiencing very strong shaking. I think we need to get under the desk Juan.”
She then went to take cover as the network cut to commercials.
