Three earthquakes less than three day shave residents in Utah County on edge. Two of the quakes happened Sunday within hours of each other.
The most recent happened just at 6:09 p.m. According to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, the 2.8 magnitude tremor hit roughly 3 miles west of Lehi.
Prior to Sunday night’s trembler, that Seismograph Stations’ data shows an earthquake early Sunday at 2:25 a.m. that measured a 2.8 magnitude. The first quake happened four miles west of Lehi at 7:38 p.m. Friday, registering 2.5 in magnitude.
While they disturbed hundreds of people, seismologists say frequent earthquakes like these are pretty normal.
“It sounded like a Mac truck was just like making its way around the neighborhood, crashing into houses. It was really loud,” said Saratoga Springs resident Dave Roach.
