Editor’s note: Seismograph picture above does not depict the actual 5.1 California earthquake.

Los Angeles was all shaken up after a 5.1 earthquake struck just after 9 p.m. Friday night.

There have been hundreds of aftershocks since, including a 4.1 tremor Saturday afternoon.

Luckily, there was only minor damage reported, but it definitely spooked Carson and Producer Angie.

“I felt it out in Palm Springs,” Carson said earlier this morning.

“Now, what is the protocol if there’s an earthquake?” Producer Angie, a born and raised Midwesterner asked.

Angie was on spring break in the Dominican Republic, but was worried sick because her toddler was staying with family very close to the epicenter.

Carson joked that she should stop, drop, and roll like she’s on fire, but here’s what you really supposed to do, according to the American Red Cross:

  • Drop, cover, and hold on
  • If you are in bed, curl up and stay there. Use a pillow to protect your head.
  • Only exit the building after the shaking stops. Make sure it is safe to evacuate and take the stairs in the event of a power outage or other damage.
  • Be on the lookout for downed power lines, gas leaks, and other potential hazards.
  • If you’re inside a car, pull over to a clear location. Avoid bridges, overpasses, and power lines.

Now’s a great time to prepare an emergency kit that you can easily access in the event of a natural disaster. Carson also offered up a couple pro-tips of his own.

“If you wear contact lenses, having glasses by your bed is a no brainer. One of the quakes, I had to run down the hallway to see my kids and I’m blind without my contacts. I couldn’t see anything.”

“Also, shoes is another big one,” he added. “Because I have photographs down my hallway. We have wood floors and there was glass everywhere.”
