Felt 4.9 Earthquake in Utah on April 15, 2010

Did you feel the 4.9 earthquake April 15th about 5:59 p.m. in Northern Utah? If so please report your observations to the USGS at this link, Did You Feel It?

The epicenter was 5 miles from Randolph, Utah which is in the North/East corner of the state about 70 miles east of Logan. The largest Utah earthquake in 18 years.

We felt it here in Farmington, but my husband who was driving in a car on his way home from work did not feel it. I was home with three of my children and we all felt it. It lasted about 15 seconds, and because I was on my bed I could feel the gentle shaking. We were relatively calm, but on alert.
