    LOS ANGELES - A strong earthquake south of the U.S.-Mexico border Sunday swayed high-rises in downtown Los Angeles and San Diego and was felt across Southern California and Arizona, knocking out power and breaking pipes in some areas but causing no major damage.
    The 7.2-magnitude quake struck at 3:40 p.m. in Baja California in Mexico, about 19 miles southeast of Mexicali, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was initially reported as a magnitude-6.9 quake. The updated magnitude was still an estimate, according to USGS seismologist Lucy Jones.
    The area was hit by magnitude-3.0 quakes all week.

    "It's been quite a while since we've had an earthquake this large," Jones said. "The last time we had an earthquake this large in either Baja or California was in 1992 with the Landers Earthquake, which was 7.3."
    The USGS reported three strong aftershocks within the hour, including a magnitude-5.1 jolt in the Imperial County desert east of San Diego. Magnitude-4.5 and magnitude-4.3 aftershocks were also reported.
    The 7.2-magnitude quake was felt as far north as Santa Barbara, USGS seismologist Susan Potter said.

    No injuries reported

    "It sounds like it's felt by at least 20 million people at this point," Jones said. "Most of Southern California felt this earthquake."

    I'm sick of these earthquakes.

    I felt it, but it was very mild. Glad it was far enough away.

    People who mention "2012" after any kind of natural disaster need to be shot in the nuts with paintball guns.

    I have two that are capable of around 35 shots per second, you may use them at will.
