5.7 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Utah’s Salt Lake City Area

A 5.7 magnitude earthquake shook Utah’s Salt Lake City area on Wednesday morning, causing some residents to lose power.

The earthquake, which hit both Salt Lake County and Utah County, caused several aftershocks ranging from 2.5 to 3.9 magnitude, according to the United States Geological Survey.

“It didn’t feel like a small earthquake at all. I heard things in my kitchen falling,” Michael McCarlie, a Salt Lake City resident, told Desert News.
