SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A light earthquake has rattled parts of southern Utah.

Officials at the University of Utah's seismograph stations say the magnitude 4.1 quake struck at 9:24 a.m. Monday.

The epicenter was about eight miles south-southeast of Cedar City and was felt by residents there.

A dispatcher at the Iron County sheriff's office says they've received numerous calls about the shock but no reports of damage.

Since 1962, 23 earthquakes with a magnitude 3.0 or larger have occurred within 16 miles of the epicenter. The largest was a 4.2 quake in June 1992.
