A POWERFUL 7.2-magnitude earthquake near the Mexico-US border has rocked buildings in Los Angeles and was felt across Southern California and Arizona.

The US Geological Survey said the quake, which struck at 3.40pm local time, was at a depth of 32.3 kilometres and was located 26 kilometres southwest of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California, Mexico.

It was 64 kilometres southwest of San Luis, in the US state of Arizona, the USGS added.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said its initial assessment found "no significant damage or injuries'' but had responded to an increase in automatic alarms and stuck elevators.

Either that or an escalation in the drug gang turf war.

The Times said rides were temporarily closed at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim.

I am glad that the Times is on top of the important details.

7.2 is a big-un. Fortunately, that’s a desolate area.

Isn’t the population of the Mexicali area around 900,000?

The epicenter was the Imperial Valley? I had not heard that.

Google Map 26 kilometres southwest of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California, Mexico. Use the satellite view. Everything for miles around is farmland.

Why is it that evry time an earthquake, hurricane, fire or some other natural disaster happens, the end of the world people come out? These things have been happening for billions of years. When God decides to end it he will end it. No sense worring about things we have no control over. Live right and you will be ok. This area has earthquake on a weekly basis.

Thanks for the theology lession. I have faith, I am a practicing Roman Catholic. I believe Jesus will come again, but I do not worry about stuff I cannot control.I strive to live right and take care of my family. I do my best to be a good Christian,(Yes we Catholics are Christians) As I said before, There have been earthquakes since the begging of time, and this area is an eartquake prone region. There are quakes weekly. I live in Yuma Az and this is part of life here. A small price to pay to live in a beautiful place.

Since there have been earthquakes for eons, I doubt it.

...and God's wrath on Southern Libbifornia.

That's as ignorant as your first comment with the added benefit of being an insult to the many fine people who live here.

That was an illegal earthquake.

It crossed into the US without proper documentation.

Gee. I didn’t know a “Darth Vader” video was a “theology lesson”. Somebody needs to take a chill pill.

Felt it here in Phoenix. I work on the 7th floor in a hospital. The building swayed over and over again, making some feel nauseated. To me it felt like I was on drugs all of a sudden. The patient’s and their family members came out into the halls, afraid. The buildings out here are not built for earthquakes.

Pretty scary. At one point I actually had to hold onto a door handle to keep my balance. I could even feel it when sitting in a chair, when it happened over an hour later again. I’ve been out here since 1970, never felt an earthquake ever. The second floor and the first floor had not any feelings of the quake at all.

Why is it that when an earthquake hits the length of time of the quake is rarely mentioned.

“and God's wrath on Southern Libbifornia”

Actually S California is probably more conservative than many areas of this country.

It's really not good to get into the “a natural disaster just struck, so those evil people are now getting God's wrath”
It makes us all look like fools.

There is enough sin in any part of this nation, to be zotted when God decides enough is enough.

Seems to be neither on the San Andreas nor San Jacinto fault zones. But the San Andreas Fault from San Bernardino to Parkfield; Tick, tick, ..... tick.

I’m in San Diego city limits and hours afterward I thought I was feeling aftershocks caused by the 7.2 quake but it was other unrelated faults moving throughout the desert triggered by the massive 7.2 movement.

Yeah I get a little tired of seeing posts from people that want us to fall off in the ocean or whatever and the assumption that everybody out here deserves such. Wonder where they think Free Republic is located?
