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.

    The first ATM for BitCoin users in New York City is up and running in a store in Greenwich Village. The controversial, virtual currency is exchanged using a 'wallet' app on mobile devices. The ATM accepts cash but only returns virtual currency to the app. At the ATM in Flat 128, a store that sells UK-designed items, the fee for store owner Liz Dubois is less than that for a credit card transaction.
