As a magnitude 5.7 earthquake rumbled Salt Lake City this morning, a number of athletes took to Twitter to react to the shake.

Of note, a bunch of Utah Jazz players did, even after the NBA said earlier this week that players could leave their markets in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak (with the exception of the quarantined Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, who tested positive for the virus).

Other people involved with both college and pro around the state also reacted to the quake.

But the award for most humorous tweet of the morning surely has to go to University of Utah receiver Britain Covey.
