The Power of an Earthquake

Most photographs of earthquakes depict damage to buildings and roads, or fissures in the earth.  The one above is most unusual.  On April 4, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck northern Mexico and the Baja region just south of the U.S. border.
Brothers traveling in Mexico during Sunday’s deadly earthquake photographed this surreal sight: The power of the quake lifting a layer of dust off a mountain range.  "We felt the truck shake and the roads cracking," Roberto wrote to NBCSanDiego. "We stopped and looked at the big hills, and the force of the quake shook the mountains and dust stared to come up."
