Magnitude 7.2 Quake Strikes Baja California

Seismologists have raised the preliminary magnitude of an earthquake in northern Baja California in Mexico from 6.9 to 7.2.......


My prayers are with the communities affected.

All this seismic activity recently has sent my church into a bout of "rapture-fever", I am sure this will only add that.

We're ok. Some jumpy nerves and minor damage. Tiajuana, to the South, got hit a little harder, but no injuries or death that I have heard of yet. :thumbsup:

I think it shows how prepared these areas are for earthquakes that only 2 or 3 people have been killed. I don't know how accurate or likely to change that number is, but it's amazing when you think that if an earthquake of this magnitude hit London or Paris, the death toll would be huge. My prayers are with the people affected.
