Earthquake Hits Brawley, CA
The city of Brawley was shaken today by a 5.4 magnitude earthquake.
There was a swarm of moderate earthquakes that hit the area every few minutes.
Structures throughout the city crumbled from the shakes and vibrations.
The streets were affected and construction workers had to close off several roads for safety.
The local Pioneer Memorial Hospital closed down to ensure that the patients wouldn't be in harms way.
Although the earthquakes have gradually faded, there's no telling when's the next time it may strike again.
