Utah just got hit by a 5.7 Earthquake

Recommended Posts

The local NPR station  just said it was a 5.9.

I was sitting in bed reading and I felt it. The taller furniture started rocking as well. I'm glad it was not serious. 

I grew up in SoCal and small tremors were somewhat common. It has been a long while and I was initially confused when it started happening.

NPR reporting earthquake was centered in the Magna area. Some minor power outages.

The quake was felt in the Ogden- Logan area, and one aftershock also, some power has been lost and a few gas leak's, delay's at the SLC airport.. We had hail this morning, earthquakes and the virus I guess locust's is next.

KSL just reported 70k were w/o power. Down to 10k at this point.

Most outages we're caused by safety switches doing their job to prevent more widespread outages

Mostly I made that comment TIC. We need idiots to quit making runs on stores and people locking themselves in their houses is what we need

The public response, increased hoarding, and media hyper focus will turn it into 6.3 before the weekend.

More people locking themselves in their homes is a good first step.

It removes their paranoia from the mainstream..
