Utah residents are still feeling aftershocks following a 5.7 magnitude quake that hit last month.

A 4.2 magnitude earthquake registered at 7:41 a.m. local time Thursday. It struck 2.5 miles northeast of Magna and had a depth of 5.9 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The town of Magna, just southwest of Salt Lake City, saw a 5.7 magnitude quake on March 18. The University of Utah Seismograph Stations said Thursday’s aftershock, as well as a 4.17 magnitude quake on Tuesday, are part of the Magna aftershock sequence.

The organization said more aftershocks are expected in the coming weeks and should become less frequent.

“A lot of you are wondering if this is normal. There is a wide range of what is considered normal and the Magna sequence is within that range,” the UUSS tweeted. “Sometimes earthquakes barely have any aftershocks, and sometimes they have more than average. This feels abnormal to us because this is the first time in most of our lives that we’ve lived near an earthquake sequence like this. But for the earth, this is business as usual.”

There have been 1,243 aftershocks from the March 18 earthquake as of Wednesday, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations said. Five others have had a magnitude of at least 4.0.




The March 18 quake knocked out power to residents, briefly closed the airport and shut down light rail services for Salt Lake City and its suburbs.

Earthquakes in Guam, Honduras

Meanwhile, other earthquakes were rattling around the world.

A quake off the coast of Honduras just after 2 a.m. Thursday registered at 6.0 magnitude and depth of 6.2 miles.

Meanwhile in Guam, a 4.2 quake struck early Thursday morning local time. The U.S. Geological Survey recorded an earthquake of 4.2 that struck 9.9 miles east-southeast of Yona with a depth of 34.9 miles at 3:59 a.m. local time.

There were no reports made to Guam 911 dispatch of damages or injuries from the earthquake, the Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defenses stated.
