Geological experts say the millions of people who felt everything from intense shaking to gentle rolling from Sunday’s powerful earthquake near the Mexico border should expect more to come.

Powerful, magnitude-7.2 quake strikes along U.S.-Mexico border.

“Don’t be surprised if you feel something in the next few days,” said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones. “We need to remember that every earthquake we have has the possibility of triggering another earthquake.”

Aftershocks began shortly after the earthquake, including a powerful tremor early this morning.

The 7.2 magnitude earthquake was the strongest to hit the region in decades, felt more than 300 miles away in Las Vegas.
