A number of stars were left unsettled by Friday night’s 7.1 earthquake, the second in two days in the Los Angeles area.

“That earthquake was intense,” wrote Nicki Minaj, one of several music artists who commented on the seismic event. She was also joined by a number of film and television celebrities including Henry Winkler, Busy Phillips, Kumail Nanjiani, Paris Jackson, Drake Bell, Kylie Jenner and Gabrielle Union as well as celebrity chef Jose Andres who is helping open a relief kitchen in the affected area.

“That earthquake was terrifying. Really thought it was the one,” wrote Nanjiani.

“To the residents of#Ridgecrest We are thinking of you during this incredibly stressful time…,” wrote Winkler.

The quake, which originated 11 miles outside of Ridge crest, is the largest in 20 years in Southern California and occurred just one day after Thursday’s 6.4 earthquake in the same area. While the earthquake did cause several instances of structural damage and fires, there were no reports of death or serious injury.

In Los Angeles, the earthquake halted rides at several amusement parks including Disneyland and Six Flags Magic Mountain in addition to causing a short lull in Friday night’s Dodgers game. However, rides quickly reopened Saturday morning.

    Were those few “celebrities” the only people in SoCal during the earthquake? No matter where you live in this country there are weather problems; snow storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, every area has problems. Pick the area you want to live in and learn to protect yourself as best you can. Complaining doesn’t help.

      David Spade had the winning tweet.

      All kidding aside. Rules for earthquakes. Stop… drop… then instagram yourself and be super dramatic. Sit back and count likes. #EarthquakeLA

    The Big One is coming soon. It is all because the fiery core of inner earth is heating up causing earthquakes in California, Hawaii, and Alaska. It is also the cause of sink holes in the earth.

    So glad that no one was injured or killed in these 2 quakes. Hopefully it will be another 20 yrs before any more come around!
