SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A small temblor was felt in the area around Ogden Thursday night.

The University of Utah seismograph stations reported that a minor earthquake of magnitude 3.7 occurred in northern Utah at 10:02 p.m.

The epicenter of the shock was located nine miles east of Ogden and two miles north of Huntsville. The shock was reported felt in Huntsville, Ogden and surrounding areas.

Walter Arabasz, director of the University of Utah seismograph stations, said at least 50 people had logged onto the University web site to get information about the quake.

An earthquake of that magnitude does not typically cause any injuries or damage to property, he said. Earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 happen on average once a month in Utah, he said.
