Brawley earthquakes

A mobile home rests on an air-conditioning unit after being knocked off its foundation in the August 2012 Brawley earthquakes.

When 2010’s Easter Sunday earthquake hit the Imperial Valley and Mexicali regions, many people were caught off-guard as they were going about their day.

The magnitude-7.2 shaker caused millions of dollars worth of property damage throughout the county, the effects of which are still being felt more than three years later.
