Piers Morgan has revealed he’s been caught up in an earthquake in Los Angeles, California.
The Good Morning Britain presenter told his fans on Twitter a 2.8 magnitude tremor shook his property, causing him to wake up.
Piers, who is enjoying his Easter break, described the earthquake as a “smallish rattle-and-roller” but “unnerving”.
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.
Piers is currently enjoying his Easter break in the states while presenter Richard Madeley fills in for him on GMB alongside Charlotte Hawkins.
Piers shared a snap of himself and son Spencer, 25, enjoying lunch in Malibu.
He captioned the post: “Sushi in the sun with son No1. #malibu #nobu.”
Fans begged Piers to return to the UK, with one person commenting: “Hurry back, cant stand Richard Madeley.”
Another moaned: “The mornings just aren’t the same on @gmb !!! Enjoy !!” while a third added: “Get back to morning TV, can’t stand it without you.”
