No damage was reported in Garfield County Saturday night after two small earthquakes struck near the city of Panguitch.

A little more than an hour later, the U.S. Geological Survey reported a second quake had struck the county almost in the same spot. The second — a 3.9-magnitude earthquake — registered about 2 miles north-northwest of Panguitch. Garfield County authorities said they had received no calls or reports from residents about the second quake.
