Earthquake in Utah!

Last Update: March 18, 2020

I live in Utah in the United States and about an hour ago we had a 5.7 earthquake!

My family was asleep and it scared us pretty bad! We've had several after shocks. Luckily we are ok. Scary stuff!

I hope everyone else is ok! This world is crazy right now. Everyone stay safe!

I saw it on my spectrogram this morning! *Earthquake geek here..basically I 'saw' the seismic 'noise' on a graph lolz*

My friends checked in and they are fine, they knew I would ring them. They may have already repaired it but, I know the corona hotline was knocked out. This is the temp # they put up in the news broadcast just in case you or, anyone else needs it.

Utah Dept. of Health : A temporary COVID-19 Information Line is available at 1-844-442-5224. Please use this number if you have questions about COVID-19 until further notice.

Blessings on you and yours!

5.7 will definitely get your attention but, unless it's the foreshock to a bigger one, you're most likely past the worst part. I live in CA. We've had many here. At about 6.5 and over, is when it can get ugly. I'm hoping it's just your nerves that have been rattled.

I'm hoping we are past the worst part as well! Oh man, Cali would be so crazy. I'd rather not feel a 6.5 or above! There has been some damage to buildings that were closer, but luckily for us it was mainly just rattled nerves.
