4.4 quake causes no significant damage

Seismologists now say the earthquake that rolled across Los Angeles before dawn was magnitude 4.4.

News anchors at TV station KTLA felt the rumble as you'll see below.

The quake was centred 15 miles (24 kilometres) west-northwest of the downtown civic centre and occurred at a depth of about 5 miles (8 kilometres).

The Los Angeles Fire Department has received no immediate reports of 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.
