Temporary seismic stations capturing more aftershocks to Duncan earthquake

AZGS staff installed three more temporary seismometers yesterday, in the area around the M5.3 Duncan earthquake in eastern Arizona.  This brings the number of temporary stations to five.   AZGS geologists Jeri Young and Mike Conway observed half a dozen micro-quakes roll across the area just during lunch while they were installing the stations.     Mike posted details and photos at our Facebook page.  [Right, Jeri Young setting up temporary station]

At 1:15 a.m. this morning the area experienced a M3.6 aftershock which should have been captured by the new stations.     [Left, orange star marks aftershock epicenter.  Credit, USGS]
