No reports of dancing chairs, swaying stove pipes or buckling floorboards, but an earthquake that registered 4.2 magnitude on the Richter scale struck 20 miles southeast of Salina, Sevier County, Monday morning.
"We have received no reports of damage," said Linda Hall, analyst for the University of Utah Seismograph Station. "But it was definitely felt."The earthquake struck in the same general area as an earthquake of 5.4 degree magnitude at 9:06 p.m. on Jan. 29, and one last Aug. 14 that registered 5.3 on the measuring scale.
Hall said Monday's quake was part of a series of aftershocks from the January temblor.
