Sulphur Peak Earthquake Information

On September 02, 2017, in eastern ​Idaho ​near ​the ​town of ​Soda Springs a magnitude 5.3 earthquake occurred that was widely felt throughout southeastern Idaho and northern Utah.  This earthquake has been followed by a very active aftershock sequence. These earthquakes are slightly outside of the University of Utah Seismograph Stations area of responsibility, but the area is of interest to UUSS and the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program.

UUSS in partnership with USGS have deployed two UUSS 3-channel strong-motion systems and six USGS 6-channel seismic systems (broadband and strong-motion) within 50 km of the seismicity.

The following page includes information about the earthquake sequence and webicorders for the temporary stations.  We will update the page with more information over time.
