A relatively small earthquake rattled much of the San Francisco area early this morning - and because this is California, everyone's startled overreaction has sent #earthquake to the top of the national Twitter trends list.
One of the most popular reactions happened on live TV, when the 4.0 quake hit in the middle of a weather report with KTVU’s Steve Paulson.
“Oh my gosh, we’re having an earthquake!” he says, grabbing the wall behind him. “Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. This is a good one.”
He managed to get through the quake and the end of his report without swearing, though he seemed pretty nervous afterwards. “All right. That was a big ‘un. I’m gonna throw it back to you guys.”
People are also enjoying these two cute puppies being shaken from their nap by the quake and looking very puzzled.
Nobody seems to have been hurt and there’s no widespread damage, so we’re all free to make sarcastic jokes about it for the rest of the day.
