Some awestruck travelers captured on video a huge dust cloud which resulted from the Baja earthquake.

Very common. After the Northridge quake everyone in L.A. had a cough for a week.

Thanks DDI. You're right. I remember the Northridge Quake, as well as the one in the SF Bay area. I've been in a couple of smaller quakes in Oregon that were enough to get people's attention, but caused little damage in comparison.

As I understand, this video was taken immediately after the quake. It's not often such views are captured. I think people who have never experienced such a thing, typically see scenes from the news media of damaged buildings and vehicles, and teams rescuing people who have been injured or recovering those who have been killed, and people who have become homeless homeless, as well as cracks in the ground. Seeing a dust cloud stretching across the entire length of a mountainous area, as in this video, can give a different view of what earthquakes do.

I also saw a satellite clip of the aftermath which showed the cloud covering a much more extensive area than shown in this video.
