Minor 3.7 magnitude earthquake rocks Ogden

Thursday, August 31, 2023


A 3.7-magnitude earthquake struck the vicinity of Ogden, causing ripples of concern through the region. According to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, the seismic event took place at 6:11 p.m. on Wednesday, centered about 10 miles northeast of Hunstville in Weber County.

In the wake of the tremor, numerous residents in the Ogden area took to social media platforms to recount their experiences of the quake. Although registering as a minor earthquake, there have been no immediate reports of damage resulting from the seismic activity.

Fortunately, the incident appears to have been isolated, with no documented occurrences of smaller quakes in the same region on the same day. However, it’s worth noting that a cluster of smaller quakes, with the most substantial measuring a magnitude of 2.1, had been reported just a few miles north of the epicenter of Wednesday’s earthquake on August 26.

The event serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of seismic activity and its capacity to elicit reactions from local communities. While this 3.7-magnitude earthquake did not cause any notable harm, it underscores the importance of preparedness and vigilance in regions prone to such occurrences. As residents recount their experiences and await further assessments, the incident stands as a testament to the ongoing monitoring efforts aimed at understanding and mitigating the impact of earthquakes on populated areas.
