Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioLook up on the hillside above North Ogden and you see a ridge of ground going north and south, that's actually the fault line from the last slip.

Geologists will start digging along that line today to see how much the fault has been slipping.

The last slip was 500 to 1,200 years ago but the State Capitol and other buildings are getting quake ready.

In the last, week dozens of 0.6 to 2.0 earthquakes have been logged in Utah.
