4.2 Magnitude Earthquake Aftershock Hits Utah

Officials say some Utah residents felt the largest aftershock yet since the 5.7 magnitude quake hit the state in March.

The aftershocks were felt late Tuesday night.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports the “light” earthquake of magnitude 4.2 was in the northwester Salt Lake Valley near the town of Magna.

Officials say the aftershock was felt in the Wasatch Front region.

Utah geologists say there have been more than 12-hundred aftershocks from the March 18 earthquake near Salt Lake City.

Officials say more aftershocks are expected in the coming weeks and should become less frequent.
