3.2 Magnitude Earthquake NE of Tooele, Utah

3.2 Magnitude Earthquake NE of Tooele, Utah
Not that a 3.2 magnitude earthquake is anything to talk about, but it felt like something to me.  ;-)

"Geological Survey reported a magnitude 3.2 earthquake that was felt in the Salt Lake Valley Saturday night.

The incident occurred at about 9:23 p.m., and a follow up press release form the USGS stated the earthquake occurred about 4 miles northeast of Tooele."

Bethany and I believe this may have been the first earthquake either of us can ever remember actually feeling.
