CBS LA news presenters take cover on Live TV during 7.1 earthquake which hit on Friday night for the second time, just a day after a magnitude 6.4 hit.

CBS LA news presenters Juan Fernandez and Sara Donchey were live on TV when the violent tremors of the 7.1 earthquake hit.

Southern California was shaken on Friday night for the second time in as many days after a 7.1 magnitude quake -centered, again, near the town of Ridgecrest – rocked the city of Los Angeles.

“We are experiencing quite a bit of shaking if you bear with us a moment,” Donchey said. “We’re making sure nothing is going to come down in the studio here.”

Visibly scared, Donchey grabbed Fernandez’s arm. “This is a very strong earthquake,” she said. “8:21 here and we’re experiencing very strong shaking. I think we need to get under the desk Juan.”

Donchey proceeded to take cover as the network abruptly paused for commercial break.

The magnitude 7.1 earthquake that hit Southern California is the largest temblor in the region in two decades, the United States Geological Survey confirmed in a news conference.

The Ridgecrest area has had more than 100 aftershocks since Thursday’s earthquake and experts warn there could be more to come.

The 6.4 magnitude quake that hit earlier was called the strongest to hit Southern California since 1999, but Friday’s quake was more powerful.
