Strong Earthquake Hits Baja

A 7.2-magnitude earthquake shook Baja California in Mexico late in the day on Sunday, its effects felt up the West Coast. The temblor damaged buildings in northern Mexico and border cities in California and Arizona, the New York Times reported, shaking up Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and other cities, "as chandeliers swayed, homes shook and the earth seemed to slide under the feet of people emerging from Easter church services for well over a minute." The quake struck about 110 miles southeast of Tijuana. One death has been reported.
