It isn't what he said, but the look on his face that made me chuckle. I guess I have a dark sense of humor.

My daughter lives in Sherman Oaks, close to the epicenter and said pictures fell off the walls, drawers flew open and her dog puked. Not very funny at 6:25 am.

Bleh, I thought that he handled it appropriately. You are taught to go under the desk. They did and then came right out and continued the telecast.

Exactly. Not only that, but he immediately called the local United States Geological Survey to get more info.

Watching a grown man dive under a desk, like a child would do in elementary school, is comical. I would bet that his female co anchor would have just sat there had he not said anything. I bet he also hides in a bathtub, under a mattress, when there is a tornado warning.

Default Re: LA anchorman's earthquake reaction is funny as sh*t

I've lived in California for almost 13 years now. We've had a few earthquakes up here. I haven't felt any of them although many people (including those in my own home) have. They take earthquakes very seriously here. It's easy to laugh at something when you don't have to deal with it on a regular basis. Yes, there are earthquakes in SC but the danger is nowhere near what it is in California. For someone who hasn't experienced it before, it can be scary. So I wouldn't make fun of someone who is reacting to one in the moment. In hindsight, yes it can be funny - once you know everyone is safe. However, put yourself in their shoes and see how you would react.

If you find it funny that's fine. Just saying that my perspective on this stuff has changed since living out here.

We don't get tornadoes in California. They are very rare. 396 tornadoes since 1950 (43 in Los Angeles County). 61% of those are F0. 85 total injuries, no deaths. By comparison, SC has had 924 with 1701 injuries and 63 deaths. Since 1990, SC has averaged 29 tornadoes a year. CA has averaged 6 (with a much larger land mass/geography).

My point? Mr Anchorman wouldn't know what to do in a tornado.

Is this sarcasm or what? If not, I sincerely hope you are never in a serious natural disaster, or you are a dead man if you don't prepare for the worst. Of all the tornados that have killed so many people in the south in the last few years, and you think it's silly to hide in the safest place in the house if you have no basement is absolutely idiotic.

Geez guys, bickering back and forth about whether it's funny or not. Even women aren't this complicated

And FWIW, I've been in a 7.7 earthquake, and his reaction made me chuckle.

Right, I can understand that. However, we can all laugh because we know everything is safe. He didn't know that so I don't think anyone can fault him for his reaction.

I'm not faulting him for his reaction. I just about peed my pants when the 7.7 struck us (I was a lot younger then, LOL). But, after the fact, knowing everyone is ok, it is a little funny watching his reaction. But I respect the fact that everyone has different opinions, I was just surprised to see so much back and forth amongst (mostly) adults.

I'm trying to be adult about it. Honestly, my perspective on earthquakes has changed since I moved to California. I was just trying to shed some light on that perspective because it is a real danger out here. Maybe the anchorman himself looks back and laughs now. However, scary, traumatic events and the real threat of natural disasters like earthquakes are dealt with a little differently out here. It's easier to laugh from a distance but if he was affected by this, it's not funny no matter how many times you try to tell him.

Since I moved out here, I've heard lots of stories about the Bay Area earthquake in 89 as well as the Loma Prieta in 94. Scary stuff.

Just sat through an earthquake on my sofa and am fine. Next time tho, I'll yell out "earthquake" and dive under the nearest table haha. Lighten up there fella. Of course I'm gonna use caution when danger is in the area, just thought this guy overreacted just a tad.

It would have been more funny had she gone under the desk and he leaned back and smiled.
