More than a year later, aftershocks continue in the Duncan area

A magnitude 3.2 earthquake was felt across eastern Arizona and western New Mexico at about 9:18 pm local time last night.   The quake occurred in the same general area near the town of Duncan that was hit by a magnitude 5.2 earthquake on June 28, 2015.  This appears to be another aftershock to that larger event.   [Right, orange star marks epicenter of quake.

The 2014 quake was the largest in the region in over 35 years.
