CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - A relatively small earthquake struck about 19 miles northwest of Carlsbad in southern New Mexico on Saturday.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports the 4.3-magnitude earthquake occurred just after 6 p.m. in a "very remote location."
Dale Grant, a USGS geophysicist, says a number of people in the area reported feeling the quake for about five to six seconds.
There were no reports of injuries or damages.
