PRESS RELEASE

University of Utah Seismograph Stations

Released: June 21, 2023 12:48 PM MDT

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports that an earthquake of magnitude 2.5 occurred at 11:50 AM on June 21, 2023 (MDT), 2.5 mi NE of Magna, UT. The shock was reported felt by 57 people. This earthquake is an aftershock of the March 18, 2020 magnitude 5.7 mainshock. There have been 2800 total aftershocks in the Magna sequence. In addition to today’s earthquake, there have been three events above magnitude 1 in the Magna region in the past day. Though the aftershocks have slowed considerably, the earthquake rate near Magna is still above the background seismicity level, indicating that the aftershock sequence is still ongoing. It is normal for aftershocks to continue for years following an earthquake of this size.
