4.4 quake causes no significant damage

    Things to take away from this:

    1.> We weren't fooling around under the desk- honest. I'm sure the guy isn't complaining.
    2.> The guy to the left of the anchor woman left so fast, his chair was literally spinning around. That is amazing.
    3.> I'm not sure why they're pointing at the rafters. The lights are BARELY swinging.
    4.>Earthquake damage to building = over 10 grand
    Probable damage to computers/studio equipment= $1000
    Facial expression of the anchorman before diving under desk = priceless
    5.>The anchorman sure ain't no gentleman. He got under the desk before the lady did. No chivalry when it comes to natural disasters I guess.
