Reports are starting to come in from Mexicali, which was hit by a massive 7.2 earthquake today.

“Emergency services in both the U.S. and Mexico scrambled to assess the extent of casualties and damage, including fallen buildings, buckled roads, cracked water canals, fires and telephone and electrical outages. It appeared that most of the damage was in the twin border cities of Calexico, Calif., and Mexicali, Mexico, where at least one person was reported killed and several injured,” according to the L.A. Times.

This earthquake was as strong as the one that hit Haiti.
