Disneyland feels 7.2 earthquake today
Apr 4, 2010
A 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit Baja California, Mexico just south of the U.S. border this afternoon at 3:40 pm. It was felt across three states, including Anaheim and the Disneyland area.
According to Suzi Brown, director of media relations for Disneyland, no injuries and no damage was reported at the Disneyland Resort. Per protocol, all attractions are shut down when an earthquake is detected. After being checked for safety, they are brought back online. One guest was stuck in an elevator at Star Tours, but has since gotten out.
At this time, Disney's California Adventure is back up and running. Disneyland Park is about 50% back up and will be completely open in a few hours.
