Report: 7.2 Earthquake Rocks Baja California, Kills Two

April 5, 2010 By: Joe Pike

According to CNN, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck northwest Baja California Sunday, rattling parts of California and Arizona as well.

It was the largest in the Baja California and Southern California area since 1992, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

At least one person was killed in a building collapse in Mexicali, Mexico, according to Alan Sandoval, Tijuana's assistant director of civil protection. The other victim died when he ran from his residence into the street and was hit by a car, said Alfredo Escobedo, Baja state's director of civil protection.

More than 140 people were treated at local hospitals, including five who were in critical condition, said Rigaberto Lasoya, medical coordinator for the state of Baja. Some were being treated outside because there's no electricity and water at the main hospital, Lasoya said.
