The US Geological Survey is reporting a magnitude 5.2 earthquake struck southeast Arizona Saturday night around 10pm.

Residents in Graham and Greenlee counties reported feeling shaking for about 10 to 20 seconds.  One man living in Safford tells Fox 10 News, "I felt a rumble and I thought it was helicopters.. all of a sudden the whole house started creaking and shaking."  He says the quake left cracks in the foundation in a couple of areas of his Safford home.

The tremor was felt as far away as Phoenix, Springerville, and Las Cruces, NM. There were no immediate reports of damage related to the quake.
