Yes, Romi, that WAS a Quake! ‘Hannah Montana’ Star Shaken Up While Live on BlogTalkRadio

Quick – someone get Romi Dames a scale!

A Richter scale, that is.

Shaken up by L.A. quake.

Romi: Shaken up by L.A. quake.

Because the Hannah Montana star may need it the next time she’s on BlogTalkRadio.

While chatting with Olivia Wilder Times host Olivia Wilder last night, the actress – who plays Traci Van Horn opposite Miley Cyrus on the hit Disney Channel show – suddenly felt her building shake.

“Oh, my gosh!  There’s an earthquake! Ah, I think so. Was that an earthquake?” she said live on-air.

Moments later – having asked a nearby pal what happened – Romi added, “Oh, apparently it was just someone on the roof.  Never mind.”

But moments after that, she was once again skeptical.

“I’m not convinced . . . There might have been an earthquake. Will someone tell me if there was an earthquake in L.A.?”

Though the issue was never settled on-air, Olivia – who podcasts from her home in Scottdale, Ariz. – later checked with the U.S. Geological Survey.

The verdict?

Romi’s fears were right:  The shock that shook her up was indeed a quake.

“The magnitude 4.5 event occurred 2 miles SSW of San Bernardino, Calif.,” the USGS said.
