A minor earthquake struck north-central Utah Saturday morning, its epicenter located about 7 miles east of the Utah Valley community of Woodland Hills and under the Wasatch Mountain Range.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations noted that the 3.7-magnitude temblor was felt not only in Woodland Hills but the neighboring communities of Salem, Spanish Fork and Provo. However, no injuries or property damage were reported.

The quake registered on monitors at 4:27 a.m. MST and had a depth of about 3 miles.

At least three less-intensive aftershocks followed the initial quake, seismologists said.
