Haven't you ever seen an action movie, subby? What happens when a grenade goes off right next to the hero? Right -- the blast throws him backwards through a glass window and he lands in the street, winded, and barely rolls out of the way in time before a light pole comes crashing down on him. Now, tell me -- do you think he just jumped through that window because he wanted to?

No, don't be stupid. He was sent through that window by shock waves. Shock waves are like normal waves except they travel through the air. And, newsflash: an earthquake is a LOT more powerful than a hand grenade. It's, like, ten times as powerful. So if a simple grenade blast's shock waves would send you through a window, don't you think an earthquake's shock waves could be felt in a helicopter? Can you at least acknowledge that possibility? I hope that you can, and maybe in the future you should consider not being such a smug snarkmongerer and learn something before you post here.

The helicopter wouldn't have felt it. He was moving at 18 times the speed of light.

That was slightly amusing but I thought they handled it well.  They didn't repeat any silly urban legends about earthquakes, and knew to go to the USGS to report the magnitude and epicenter.  I would guess all newcasters in California get earthquake reporting training.
