Mexican authorities dispatched engineers to check damaged houses and buildings Monday in Baja California state following a major earthquake Sunday that left two people dead.
The Federal Electricity Commission was also working to restore power in the city of Mexicali, state-run news agency Notimex reported.
The 7.2-magnitude quake struck northwest Baja California Sunday, rattling parts of California and Arizona as well. It was the largest in the Baja California and Southern California area since 1992, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
At least one person was killed in a building collapse in Mexicali, Mexico, according to Alan Sandoval, Tijuana’s assistant director of civil protection.
The other victim died when he ran from his residence into the street and was hit by a car, said Alfredo Escobedo, Baja state’s director of civil protection.

More than 140 people were treated at local hospitals, including five who were in critical condition, said Rigaberto Lasoya, medical coordinator for the state of Baja. Some were being treated outside because there’s no electricity and water at the main hospital, Lasoya said.
All injuries are concentrated in Mexicali, officials said.
