A California earthquake appeared to interrupt a live Fox Sports 1 broadcast on Friday (February 9).

'Speak' host Joy Taylor shared a clip of the incident on her X account, which took place as she was addressing Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' legacy heading into his Super Bowl LVIII matchup against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday (February 11).

"We are experiencing an earthquake," Taylor said after pausing, though keeping her composure and continuing her take.

FS1's headquarters are located in the Century City section of Los Angeles. A 4.6-magnitude earthquake struck California Friday afternoon, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The natural disaster was located in Malibu and centered at a depth of kilometers (about 8.6 miles).

An estimated 15,401 residents said they felt the earthquake at the time of publication on Friday. The Malibu earthquake was reported hours after a 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck Hawaii on Friday, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The natural disaster was located off the Pāhala and centered at a depth of 34.6 kilometers (about 21.5 miles). An estimated 76 residents said they felt the earthquake at the time of publication on Friday afternoon.

Several other earthquakes were reported in California during recent months. A 3.4-magnitudeĀ earthquakeĀ struck California last Friday (February 2), according to theĀ United States Geological Survey.

The natural disaster was located off the Northern California coast near the San Francisco Zoo and centered at a depth of 9.9 kilometers (about 6.15 miles).

California was previously struck by a 4.2-magnitude earthquake nine days prior. The natural disaster was located in San Bernardino and centered at a depth of 15.5 kilometers (about 9.63 miles), with seismologistĀ Dr. Lucy JonesĀ reporting that it was located near the San Jacinto fault.

"This quake is M4.2 2 miles SW of San Bernardino. Location is pretty deep (15 km) very close to the San Jacinto fault. That part of the fault is generally locked - it had a M7 in the 19th century. We often see small quakes like this below locked segments," Jones wrote on herĀ XĀ account.

A separate 4.2-magnitude earthquake was reported to have struck California earlier in January. The natural disaster was located in Lytle Creek, which is located about 12 miles from Rancho Cucamonga and centered at a depth of 8.8 kilometers (about 5.5 miles) on January 5, according to theĀ United States Geological Survey.
