It’s no secret — Southern California including Los Angeles was hit with a hurricane-turned-tropical storm earthquake combo on Sunday. Either you felt this hurriquake, laughed at the memes, — or all of the above. The storm was certainly expected, but that earthquake caught some of us off guard… and well, sometimes you have to find the humor in it all to cope. Luckily, there were no reports of major damage from the earthquake, which means it’s a safe space to laugh a little.
The internet did its thing, and we collected some of the funniest online reactions from Californians and Angelenos below!
Note: If you have lived in California your entire life (or even for a while), then know that Earthquake safety and protocol is no joke. Rest assured, we will be putting out ways to properly prepare for an earthquake soon. It will be linked here. In the meantime, you can check out this Earthquake Preparedness sheet put out by the County of Los Angeles Fire Department here. Thank you!
