A minor earthquake measuring 3.0 on the Richter scale shook residents in Park City and small areas of Salt Lake City on Sunday but did no damage to buildings.
Sue Nava, senior seismologist at the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, said there had been no aftershocks from the 8:30 a.m. quake as of Sunday afternoon. She said that while aftershocks are not uncommon, they are usually smaller in magnitude.Nava said such quakes are relatively common in the Park City area as several faults run through the mountainous areas in surrounding Wasatch and Summit counties.
The epicenter of Sunday's quake was about six miles northeast of Park City and three miles southwest of Rockport Reservoir.
"The only reports we have are that it shooks some residents in Park City and in small areas of Salt Lake City," Nava said. "Quakes are relatively common in this area - it was nothing unusual."
