A small earthquake struck central Utah early Thursday, prompting calls to a radio station from residents who felt it. It caused no injuries, officials said.
Sue Nava, staff seismologist at the University of Utah Seismology Stations, said the quake registered magnitude 3.4 on the Richter scale. It occurred about 4:30 a.m. and was centered three miles west of Salina.Nava said the quake was unrelated to a shock of 5.4 magnitude that occurred 16 miles southeast of Salina Jan. 29, 1990.
Sevier and Sanpete county sheriff's dispatchers said they had received no calls, but radio station KSVC said it got about 25 calls from Salina, Redmond and Aurora after broadcasting a report.
One caller reported a cracked ceiling.
