The U.S. Geological Survey says a minor earthquake occurred Tuesday morning in central Utah.

University of Utah earthquake monitor Relu Burlacu said no damage or injuries have been reported from the 3.6 magnitude earthquake that occurred at about 4:30 a.m., about 12 miles northwest of the town of Emery.

Burlacu says the largest earthquake to occur in the area was a 5.1 earthquake in 1989.
