Earthquake Shakes KGO During Morning Newscast

Most San Francisco residents were asleep yesterday when a pair of earthquakes struck the Bay Area around 5:30 a.m. But Kristen Sze and Eric Thomas, the co-anchors of the early morning newscast on KGO, were wide awake.

“I believe we’re feeling an earthquake right now,” Sze said, interrupting a report on an education rally (video above). “In fact, a pretty big earthquake. The studio is shaking.”

“Good jolt, lasted for a few seconds,” Thomas responded. “In fact, it might have felt like what appeared to be two jolts, a smaller one and then a larger one. The lights were shaking pretty good in here.”

The earthquakes were eight seconds apart — the first with a magnitude of 2.9, the second with a magnitude of 4.0, according to the Associated Press.

“I sounded calmer than I felt!” Sze Tweeted yesterday afternoon.
