SUMMIT PARK, Utah (AP) — A minor earthquake shook portions of northern Utah late Saturday morning, but there were no reports of damage.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations says the epicenter of the magnitude-3.0 temblor was beneath East Canyon in the Wasatch Range, about seven miles north of Summit Park and 17 miles northeast of Salt Lake City.

The 11:41 a.m. earthquake was reported felt in Park City, Salt Lake City and other nearby towns. A magnitude-1.9 aftershock occurred two minutes later.

Dispatchers for the Summit County Sheriff's Office and Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake report receiving no calls from the public about the activity.

Seismologists say the area where the temblors occurred has a history of seismic activity. A widely felt magnitude-3.3 quake occurred on June 12, 2014, in the area.
