Earthquake Lifts Layer of Dust Off a Mountain Range



Brothers traveling in Mexico during Sunday's deadly earthquake photographed a surreal sight: The power of the quake lifting a layer of dust off a mountain range.

The dramatic photographs were shot by Roberto and Adrian Marquez Marquez just after the 3:40 p.m magnitude 7.2 quake. The pictures show the area around La Rumorosa, the highest point in Tecate.

that is very cool, thank you for posting.

however i have one question, are we sure this is from the quake and not from a strong wind gust?

i know i could be wrong, but i dont understand how these mountains shaking would throw dirt that high up in the air, maybe its a combination of both quake and high wind?

Combination of wind and a shake rattle and roll could do that I reckon.

Wicked videos/pic whatever the cause.

I'd have to say a combination. I lived for years in similar mountains and foothills which were subject to the Santa Ana winds and I've *never* seen anything like that.

Whoa!
Yeah man, when my apartment building shook I had a feeling something like that would happen.
Craziness.

This is pretty amazing footage, it's almost like the mountains jumped up and shook the dust off.

Fragile Earth indeed!

That is just simply amazing! I have never seen anything like that before, if I was driving down that highway, I would have stopped too. At least until the dust gets blown in my direction, then I'm out.

LAME...

Just kidding, with everyone saying wow, I couldn't resist breaking the chain


That is amazing! I don't even know what would be going through my head if I saw that happen. The awesome tricks nature keeps up her sleeves never cease to amaze me.

Thanks for sharing!


S&F for you my friend!

Incredible how nature never ceases to amaze me. Great footage find

I would have stopped too


Yeah I think I would have too, but I think my first thought would have been Volcano, what with all the shaking & such. Then to see a huge plum of dust, I would have probably initially thought that whatever mountain that was, was about to blow it's top.

Amazing sight to see. I wonder if those mountains moved permanently either vertically or horizontally.

Good post! S&F for sure!

It looks like the mountain jumped right up in the air. The dust doesn't seem to be wind driven. It is just kind of looming, aside from maybe being moved by a slight breeze, it looks as though the mountain was thrust upward and then slammed back down from the height of the dust off the mountain. Just speculation of course.

Lots of rolling rocks and landslides.

Its a wonder no one was hiking in the hills and got crushed.
