An earthquake rattled central Oklahoma Tuesday morning, shaking the studio at KAUT, an independent station in Oklahoma City. Emily Sutton and Lacey Lett were on the air and reacted with delight–and dancing.

US Geological Survey measured the quake at 4.2. There were reports of minor damage across the state, but the lasting legacy may be this priceless piece of video:

Earthquake Hits During Oklahoma City Morning Newscast

A series of earthquakes at 5:31, 5:47 and 6:25 a.m. hit the Oklahoma City area this morning.

The largest hit at 5:47 a.m. and was 4.2 on the Richter scale. Reactions among the local stations were pretty consistent, an initial reaction followed by a guess of the earthquake’s magnitude.

“Whoa! Oh my Gosh! I’m so sorry,” said KOCO meteorologist Danielle Dozier during the 5:47 a.m. shaker. “This is live on air.” Dozier then waited for the rumbling to stop before saying,  “That was way bigger than what we felt earlier.” Dozier rightly predicted that earthquake was over 4.0.

FOX affiliate KOKH had the most restrained reaction. Chief meteorologist Jeff George was at the tail end of his forecast when the quake hit and said nothing. Anchor Leslie Draffin told viewers the station just felt what she called a huge earthquake and promised to give more info before tossing to break.

CBS affiliate KWTV was coming back from a video and tossing to meteorologist Lacey Swope who yelled “Earthquake!” when it hit.  Stan Miller and Tammy Payne talked about anchors making it on YouTube with their earthquake reactions and suggested Swope take a deep breath after she ducked down and told viewers her heart was racing.

KFOR, the NBC affiliate was showing forecast maps when the temblor hit. “Oh snap!” said meteorologist Emily Sutton. “That’s a big one.” Sutton also commented that the clanking of the lights was the thing she noticed most. Sutton and anchor Kent Ogle high fived after revealing they had both correctly guessed a previous earthquakes magnitude.

Local Channels Cover Midwest Tornadoes for Cable Networks

When multiple tornadoes tore through central Oklahoma and Wichita, KS, Sunday, MSNBC, CNN and FOX News went with the local stations in the area to show viewers what was happening.

Oklahoma City NBC affiliate KFOR provided views for both CNN and MSNBC. KFOR meteorologist Mike Morgan was in the studio coordinating between the KFOR helicopter and crews on the ground to warn viewers of approaching twisters.

Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO was also used as a resource by CNN. The cable network switched between shots of meteorologist Brad Sowder at the weather map and the KFOR feed to flesh out the developing story. At one point early on, CNN went to Wichita CBS affiliate KWCH for an update on the tornado warnings in effect in the Wichita area.

Tulsa and Oklahoma City CBS affiliates KOTV-KWTV were used by FOX News in their reporting.  FOX stuck with anchor Gregg Jarrett in the studio with meteorologist Janice Dean while taking live phone interviews with witnesses on scene.

Emily Sutton Joins KFOR Morning News

KFOR meteorologist Emily Sutton will be moving to mornings for the Oklahoma City NBC affiliate.

“This will be a lifestyle change because I will be getting up a lot earlier, but I can do this,” Sutton said in a statement. “Being a marathon runner will no doubt help.”

Sutton, who joined KFOR three years ago, will join Ali Meyer, Kent Ogle and Britnee Bryles on KFOR from 4:00 to 7:00 a.m. and Lance West and Britnee Bryles from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. on KFOR’s independent sister station KAUT.

She replaces David Payne who left for rival station KWTV, Oklahoma City’s CBS affiliate, in December. Read more
