http://abclocal.go.com

The 7.2-magnitude earthquake centered near the border city of Mexicali struck Easter Sunday afternoon and rocked all of Southern California and parts of Arizona and Nevada. According to the Tijuana Civil Protection Director Alfredo Escobedo, the powerful earthquake killed a man whose home collapsed in northern Mexico. Escobedo also said that another man was killed when he panicked as the ground shook, ran into the street and was struck by a car. According to reports, Mexicali and adjacent cities are experiencing widespread power outages and buildings are suffering from major structural damage. Escobedo said that at least 100 people were injured, most of them struck by falling objects. Mexicali felt at least 20 aftershocks, and the city is under a virtual blackout without viability to regain power for approximately 14 hours. The quake was one of the strongest to hit Southern California in decades, and high rise buildings in Los Angeles and San Diego rocked back and forth when it hit. There were reports of shattered windows, broken pipes and water main breaks in private buildings in San Diego, but there were no reports of injuries.

http://mashable.com

A magnitude-7.2 earthquake shook Baja California. It was felt from San Diego to Mexicali to Phoenix. There was some damage, but thankfully, casualties were low. We turned to Twitter for a closer look at the earthquake’s impact on the communities along the Pacific. These photos of the damage in Mexicali and other locales were shared via Twitter and TwitPic this afternoon by people who experienced the earthquake first-hand. We saw it (perhaps more aptly) after the Chile earthquake, too: Social media can make personal experiences universal. Twitter advocates like to talk about how much more quickly news and images can get out through the service, but that’s not the only thing that’s changed in today’s world as a result of social media.
