Baja California quake magnitude raised to 7.2

Baja California quake magnitude raised to 7.2

Seismologists have raised the preliminary magnitude of an earthquake in northern Baja California in Mexico from 6.9 to 7.2.
U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones says the new magnitude of the earthquake at 3:40 p.m. EDT Sunday is still an estimate.
The quake centered south of California's border with Mexico was widely felt, swaying buildings as far away as San Diego, Los Angeles and Arizona.
There has been no confirmed damage, but some power outages were reported in southern Arizona and Tijuana, Mexico.
Jones says any damage would likely have happened closer to the epicenter such as in the Mexican city of Mexicali or in U.S. border cities.
