Second small quake near Hurricane Fault

We've had a second minor earthquake in the past week in northwest Arizona just west of the surface trace of the west-dipping Hurricane fault. The M1.7 event occurred at 9:40 am today, about 16 miles SSE of St. George, Utah.

There was a M1.5 event in the same area on May 22 but it's no longer on the USGS current earthquake list and not in the archives yet that I can find.
