SAFFORD, Ariz. (AP) — A minor earthquake has struck near the Arizona-New Mexico border.

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

USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin said the temblor is 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 it.
