California earthquake shakes celebrities into freaking out on Twitter
If you were in the Los Angeles area early this morning, we probably know what you were up to: bolting out of bed and wondering what was happening.
A magnitude 4.2 earthquake struck L.A. at 4:29 a.m., felt most strongly in the epicenter of San Fernando. The quake spread across the L.A. Basin area as well as into Orange County. No damage or deaths have been reported, but smaller aftershocks did follow the initial quake.
And even more aftershocks rippled across Twitter. Here’s a taste of how celebrities (and a few civilians) reacted:

My preparedness for an earthquake is the same as the US government for COVID-19. None.— JoJo. (@iamjojo) July 30, 2020
My children are in my arms and we are awake too early because of that earthquake but now they’re discussing how their ninja skills would totally help in this time 🤣💁🏼♀️ I’m just happy they’re more interested and curious about it and less scared. Hallelujah! https://t.co/MHm925Ezd6— Kelly Clarkson (@kellyclarkson) July 30, 2020
