SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A 3.9 magnitude earthquake occurred in northern Utah today, although no damage was reported. The University of Utah Seismograph Stations says the epicenter of the shock occurred north of the Great Salt Lake at the southern end of the Blue Spring Hills, about nine miles southwest of Tremonton.

The earthquake was felt by dozens of people in Tremonton, Garland and surrounding communities and could be felt as far away as Pocatello, Idaho, about 78 miles to the north.

The earthquake was the largest in the area since 1962, when a magnitude 4.5 was recorded.
