Seismologists say another minor earthquake was recorded in southern Utah's Tushar Mountains.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations in Salt Lake City reports the magnitude 3.5 quake occurred at 1:46 a.m. Wednesday, and was centered six miles northwest of Circleville.

University seismologists say the quake is part of an ongoing earthquake sequence following a magnitude 4.6 quake Jan. 3.

That temblor centered eight miles northwest of Circleville was felt in Beaver and other nearby small towns.

Anyone who felt Wednesday's earthquake was encouraged to fill out a survey on the website of the Seismograph Stations or U.S. Geological Survey.
