Small Earthquake Near Los Alamos

Los Alamos – A magnitude 3.8 earthquake has struck around 20 miles from Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the light temblor hit after 10:30 a.m. on Monday. It was centered nine miles north of Santa Fe and hit around 19 miles southeast of Los Alamos National Laboratory. It also had a depth of around .7 miles.

There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.

The small earthquake comes after a magnitude 4.0 earthquake struck Northern New Mexico last month and magnitude 5.3 earthquake hit around the same area in August.
