New anchors Chris Schauble and Megan Henderson wasted no time before ducking and covering.

At 6:25 Monday morning, just as the work week was getting underway, Southern California was hit by a 4.4-magnitude earthquake.

Henderson can be seen gripping the news desk as the studio begins to shake, but it's Schauble's priceless (and gif-able) reaction that has made the clip go instantly viral.

"Earthquake! We're having an earthquake," Schauble says, before diving under the desk.

Fortunately, Schuable seems to have embraced his newfound viral fame, even making his "earthquake shocked face" his Twitter profile picture.

Watch the whole clip as the team is able to recover.
