(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Two small earthquakes rattled parts of Utah today.

The quake was felt in the communities of Nephi and Levan, each less than 10 miles from the epicenter. Some residents reported items falling off shelves, but no injuries were reported.

The second quake, a two-point-six magnitude temblor, was recorded at two-22 p-m and centered two miles northeast of Magna. There were no reports of damage.
