WATCH: TV anchor stays calm during strong quake


This TV news host from General Santos City stayed calm and composed even as a strong earthquake struck while she was delivering the news. 

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake rocked Davao Occidental province on Wednesday, with an Intensity 5 felt in neighboring General Santos City. But that did not stop Dryll Bartolaba of Brigada News TV from breaking the story to the audience.

A video shared by Brigada News Davao in its Facebook page showed Bartolaba carrying out her reporting duty inside a studio amid objects shaking in the background.

“Breaking news ho sa oras na ito. Nakakaranas po tayo ng lindol, may pagyanig po ngayon. Sa sandali hong ito, may mga paggalaw pa rin po ng lupa tayong nararamdaman ngayon,” said Bartolaba.

She even managed to advise on what to do during an earthquake. 

“Muli ang utos ng ating mga disaster risk management offices, kailangan kalma lang po tayo. ‘Wag pong magpanic kapag may lindol. Duck, cover and hold po agad.”

Bartola shared the video in a Facebook post, saying in jest, “HIGHLIGHT OF MY 2020 LOL DYLL VS LINOG ? Tuloy sa pag HATAW!”
