Aftershocks continue from Duncan M5.3 earthquake
A magnitude 3.2 event hit at 12:30 pm, followed by a magnitude 3.5 shock at 9:24 pm. [Right, the top orange circle is the M3.2 aftershock, the leftmost orange circle is the M3.5 event.

AZGS is working with the PASSCAL (Program for Array Seismic Studies of the Continental Lithosphere Instrument Center) instrument facility in Socorro, NM, to deploy a temporary network of 6 seismometers in the epicentral area. In addition to better detection and location of continuing aftershocks, the information will help correct the locations of the 100+ aftershocks already recorded.
