Small quake near Arizona-Utah border

A M2.0 earthquake was recorded Monday afternoon in northwest Arizona, near the Utah border. The quake is in an area of historical seismicity along the active Hurricane fault. [right, star shows quake epicenter and historical seismicity. Credit, USGS]


  1. I've lived in Arizona since 1980 and don't recall a single earthquake. Maybe they've happened but I don't recall. I do recall some times of flood from torrents of rainfall.

  2. Ah the hurricane fault of northern Arizona giving some seismic activity upsets here and there over the years. I wonder if it's been active as of late. Haven't felt anything out here in Scottsdale to the south but we tend to not feel much of any earth quake activity here - thankfully.
