A 5.3-magnitude earthquake hit western Texas on Wednesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake struck about 23 miles west-southwest of Mentone around 4:27 a.m. local time.
"You probably were just rudely awakened by an earthquake. USGS is reporting a M5.2 south of Carlsbad, NM, which occurred at 3:27am. We felt it here in Santa Teresa," the National Weather Service for El Paso, Texas, said on X.
Santa Teresa, New Mexico, is more than 200 miles west of where the quake was detected.
The earthquake occurred at a depth of about 4.5 miles, according to the USGS. A series of aftershocks followed, including one recorded at 3.4 magnitude. Nearly a year ago, a 5.3-magnitude earthquake hit the same area.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there had been no reports of damage or injuries.
