Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox tweeted that he felt the quake in Fairview about 7 p.m. Someone else, replying to Cox’s tweet, reported feeling it in Ephraim, too.

The United States Geological Survey logged a second 3.0-magnitude earthquake about an hour later, near Mount Pleasant.

County dispatchers had not received any reports of damage or injuries from the quakes.
