CIRCLEVILLE, Utah (ABC4) – Residents in southern Utah might have felt a gentle shake Thursday morning after a 2.73 magnitude earthquake.
The USGS says the quake happened shortly after 8 a.m. about 5.5 miles northwest of Circleville.
According to the University of Utah, a 2.43 magnitude earthquake was reported directly across Utah about 10.5 miles east southeast of Castle Dale at around 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
In late November, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations issued their bi-weekly report, showing the Utah region has had 98 earthquakes of all different magnitudes over the last 10 days.
Eight months later, residents in Magna and the surrounding Salt Lake Valley felt a 2.5 magnitude aftershock from the initial earthquake.
