Dwight Howard Was In His L'Ermitage Bathroom During Beverly Hills Earthquake
A small earthquake struck the Beverly Hills neighborhood of LA earlier this morning, which followed a 3.2 magnitude rumble that hit the same area on Monday.
As it happened, recently-traded NBA star Dwight Howard was in his hotel bathroom when the Monday quake hit. How do we know this? TMZ asked him, obviously, since this was technically his first earthquake since being traded to the LA Lakers. When Howard was asked how he handled things, he answered:
"I was in the toilet … and It shook me off the toilet."
There you have it. Not the most savory mental image to take with you for the rest of the day, but at least we know the facts.
Along with an absurdly accurate accompanying photo of the toilet/earthquake scenario, WithLeather reports that Howard is in fact staying at the hotel (which can be identified as L'Ermitage in the TMZ vid) until his home in Newport Beach is finished being built.
Luckily, the traumatic experience hasn't turned him off the city, as one reporter hastened to ask. "No way, man, I love it here in LA."
