Celebrities React to 4.7-Magnitude Los Angeles Earthquake
While there are many ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (usually involving alcohol), the residents in and around Los Angeles woke up to a ground-shaking event this morning (March 17).
According to the USGS, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake emanated from the Westwood epicenter at 6:25am and plenty of stars were caught off-guard.
Always quick with the facts, Ryan Seacrest posted, “earthquake. 4.7 out of Westwood,” while Chelsea Peretti flipped out- “THAT WAS SCARY AS F*CK.”
“Frozen” actor Josh Gad declared, “Okay, that was intense. Just shook me out of bed. #earthquake,” and Gracie Dzienny posted, “Definitely woke up letting out a horror movie scream during the earthquake. #abitshakenup.”
