Angelenos may have been shaken up a bit this morning by the 4.4 earthquake that hit Los Angeles. However, KTLA's morning news team was up and at 'em at 6:25 a.m. when it struck and we got to see their news team freak out on air.

And it's pure comedic gold.

In the clip, co-anchor Chris Schauble had a look of pure shock on his face. He points a finger up to the ceiling and says, "We're having an earthquake." He and co-host Megan Henderson then duck for cover under their tables and looked scared while their camera monitors were still shaking.

We've got to love local news reporting!

Update 8:25 a.m.: We've got to give it to Schauble for having a great attitude about this news report (as we all admittedly probably freaked out in the same way at home). He's already changed his Twitter profile picture to the shocked expression he had on TV and tweeted this out:
