The earthquake on Sunday, which rattled the California-Mexico border, was as large in energy magnitude as the disaster in Haiti, and the third major quake in the Western Hemisphere over the last three months. Even placed in the slow-moving context of earth time, these quakes were major events. The Sunday shaker was magnitude 7.2, the strongest in Southern California in two decades, and felt by more than 20 million people, though mercifully only killed a few people.
