7.2 Mag Quake Rocks Mexico, SoCal

Quake rolls across Baja - Los Angeles Times

The magnitude 7.2 temblor topples buildings and is blamed for at least two deaths. Damage is worst in the border cities of Calexico and Mexicali.

Reporting from Mexico City and Mexicali, Mexico - A magnitude 7.2 earthquake rocked Mexico's Baja California peninsula Sunday, jolting millions of people from Los Angeles and San Diego to Phoenix and scattering destruction along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Emergency services in both the U.S. and Mexico scrambled to assess the extent of casualties and damage, including fallen buildings, buckled roads, cracked water canals, fires and telephone and electrical outages. It appeared that most of the damage was in the twin border cities of Calexico, Calif., and Mexicali, Mexico, where at least two people were reported killed and several injured.
