A 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck just outside Salt Lake City, Utah, early Wednesday.
Salt Lake Tribune reports a magnitude 5.7 earthquake struck the Wasatch Front at 7:09 a.m., shaking homes from Logan down to Utah County. It was the state’s largest since a 1992 earthquake in St. George.
It has caused damage to the Salt Lake City International Airport, downtown buildings and even the Salt Lake Temple, where the Angel Moroni statute has lost its trumpet. There are power outages, gas leaks and a chemical spill at Kennecott.
So far, there have been no reports of serious injuries. Intermountain Healthcare treated some for minor injuries.
The epicenter of the earthquake was northeast of Magna, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Dozens of aftershocks followed, with the strongest being a magnitude 4.6. It’s likely there will be hundreds of aftershocks in the days to come, Keith Koper, director of the University of Utah Seismograph Stations told FOX 13, and they could last for weeks.
