An earthquake of magnitude 5.7 that struck southwest Iceland was caught on camera when the country’s Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir was in a live interview with the Washington Post. However, it is the PM’s reaction that has prompted an avalanche of reactions on social media.

“Oh my God, there’s an earthquake,” Jakobsdóttir said during her interview with Washington Post foreign affairs columnist David Ignatius on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on tourism and how the county planned to tackle it. Though Jakobsdóttir is visibly startled by the tremors, she remains seated and soon resumes the interview by saying, “Well, this is Iceland.”
