Minor earthquake rattles Arizona-New Mexico border

SAFFORD, AZ (CBS5/AP) -

Cities and towns on the Arizona-New Mexico border did a little shake, rattle and roll as a minor earthquake struck early Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude-3.6 quake struck about 1:15 a.m. in southeastern Arizona, about 26 miles northwest of Lordsburg, NM. There was no immediate word of damage.

USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin said the temblor was an aftershock of the magnitude-5.2 quake that struck the region on June 28. He said the area could see aftershocks for a month.

Baldwin said two people about 10 miles away reported feeling Wednesday's temblor. Other cities affected included Silver City and Deming, NM, Douglas and Phoenix.
