Utah is earthquake country, and the Wasatch Front is capable of producing large earthquakes. We can’t predict when or where an earthquake will happen, but we can prepare to the best of our abilities. This article has a great video about what you can do to prepare, and supplies you should have on hand.


The destruction witnessed in Northern California following a 6.0 magnitude earthquake should be a wake up call to citizens here in Utah. Our state could be next.
