He shared a snap of a map of the area showing a mobile alert declaring an earthquake.

Piers wrote: “Well, the bed most definitely moved for me… Just been woken up in LA by a 2.8 magnitude earthquake. Epicentre a mile from my house in Beverly Hills.

“Just a smallish rattle-and-roller but always rather unnerving, especially as California’s due another ‘Big One’.”

American rapper Cardi B then tweeted: “Ommmgg I never felt a earthquake till today! [Expletive] I’m scare! (sic)”

Piers replied: “It was only 2.8. Do get a grip, Ms B.”

Of course, fans were quick to express concern for Piers and made sure he was okay.

One person said: “Thanks for the check in Piers… glad to know you are safe,” while another wrote: “Keep safe.”

A third added: “Yikes. Stay safe,” while a fourth said: “Hope you’re okay Piers.”

If you didn’t know, the ‘Big One’ refers to a large scale earthquake on the Cascadia Subduction, which could rip through California and the west coast of the USA in mere minutes and  cause a tsunami.
