BOX ELDER COUNTY, Utah — A 3.6-magnitude earthquake struck Box Elder County Saturday morning, according to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations.

“The epicenter of the shock was located 4.6 miles SW of Corinne, UT and 9 miles W of Brigham City,” read a 7:42 a.m. tweet from the U of U Seismograph Stations.

The station said more than 100 people from Salt Lake City to Logan reported feeling the quake, which occurred at 6:45 a.m.

“There have been 12 events ranging in magnitude from 1.0 to 2.7 since Nov. 1 of this year, and one event of magnitude 1.2 after that mainshock,” read another tweet.

Since 1962, the station says a total of 10 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater have occurred within 16 miles of the epicenter of Saturday’s quake. The largest was a 3.9-magnitude quake on Sept. 1, 2007, with the epicenter being 9.1 miles southwest of Tremonton.

The largest earthquake to occur within 32 miles of Saturday’s event, according to the station, was a 4.5-magnitude on July 5, 1989, 11.4 miles west-south-west of Tremonton.

Anyone who felt the quake on Nov. 12, 2022, was encouraged to fill out a survey form on the U.S. Geological Survey website.
