The tremor was felt 150 miles to the south in Salt Lake City and in much of western Wyoming.

Seismographers from the University of Utah said the quake is an aftershock of a 5.3 magnitude earthquake in the area in September. That quake brought a swarm of hundreds of aftershocks in the weeks that followed.
