After Jamaica experienced an earthquake on Oct. 30, reggae recording artist Sean Paul was seen scrambling out of his chair on a live Twitch stream as the tremors were taking place.
During a live interview on the social media platform, the artist was talking to artist Tofu Jack and director of Vice Documentaries Dan Zabludovsky. In the footagre, Paul panicked and informed the hosts that Jamaica was experiencing an earthquake.
As he jumped from his seat, he said, “Oh s**t, we’re having an earthquake,” and disappeared from the screen. As the two interviewers looked worried, Tofu Jack said, “Oh my God, what?” After a few seconds of silence, Zabludovsky repeated the phrase, “Oh my God!”

As Prime Minister Andrew Holness reported after the earthquake calmed down, no deaths, injuries, or severe damage were reported; so it’s safe to assume that Paul isn’t in any danger.
Holness stated that the “Damage has been minor, but nevertheless, we are taking all precautions. I want to say to all Jamaicans, remain calm.”
The Associated Press reported that an earthquake measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale struck the island. The tremor’s epicenter was about 2 miles (4 kilometers) west-northwest of Hope Bay in northeastern Jamaica, based on a report by the U.S. Geological Survey. It occurred at a shallow depth of 6 miles (10 kilometers).
This was the second earthquake to hit the island in two months. The Jamaican Gleaner reported in September that the island had been hit with a 5.0 magnitude earthquake. The effects were reportedly felt in Cuba and parts of the United States.
