OKLAHOMA CITY, June 16 (UPI) -- An Oklahoma television meteorologist got a little bit rattled during her 10-day forecast report on Monday morning when it was interrupted by an earthquake.

KOCO's Danielle Dozier was a little bit shaken up when the quake first hit, but she was able to pull it together and finish up the segment like a professional.

The earthquake that temporarily derailed Dozier's report was the second one early on Monday.

"Whoa, oh my gosh! I'm so sorry. This is live on air," Dozier said when the quake first shook the studio. "That was way bigger than what we felt earlier."

The first quake measured 3.5 in magnitude.

"That one was well over 4.0 magnitude, I can tell you that much right now," Dozier said. "Forgive me. That one actually scared me. That's how big it was," she said.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the second quake had a magnitude of 4.2.
