3.0 Earthquake Strikes Snyderville Basin
At 11:45 AM Saturday morning a 3.0 magnitude earthquake struck our area. The US Geological Survey says the epicenter was 7 miles north of Summit Park. Many residents reported feeling the quake with one saying “that her house shook violently” and another “It was so jarring that I first thought a truck had hit the building and then I wondered, earthquake?”
I hope this is an isolated event and not just a trimmer before something larger. As always, it’s a good time to get yourself prepared.
Update: People at Basin Rec Fieldhouse reported hearing two large booms around that time…perhaps weights falling.
