7.2 Quake in Baja*

New, 24 comments

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake rocked Baja California this afternoon. Did you feel it? Conspiracy theorists will pounce on the fact that today is 04/04, and that nighttime quake felt in LA last month registered a 4.4. UPDATE: Seems to be a discrepancy in how long things shook for in LA...LAT: "In Los Angeles, the shaking persisted for several seconds." NYT: "The earthquake shook houses in Los Angeles for roughly 60 seconds, and aftershocks then followed." UPDATE: Now seismologists are putting it at a 7.2*. [US.Gov]
