First Published Apr 19 2014 09:53 pm • Last Updated Apr 19 2014 10:23 pm

A 3.2-magnitude earthquake shook the west side of the Salt Lake Valley on Saturday night.

Salt Lake County dispatchers confirmed the earthquake — they should know, they felt it. A dispatcher said the moderate quake lasted few seconds at their West Valley City office, and that they fielded calls about the shake, too. There were no immediate reports of damage connected to the 9:23 p.m. quake.

The epicenter of the quake was roughly near Tooele, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
