No damage was reported in Garfield County Saturday night after two small earthquakes struck near the city of Panguitch.
Garfield County authorities said someone called to report they heard a loud boom and their home shook when the first 3.3-magitude quake struck about 8 p.m. about a mile north-northeast of Panguitch. No damage or injuries were reported.
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.
