MOUNT PLEASANT, Utah (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says a minor 4.2-magnitude earthquake hit 7 miles south of Mount Pleasant, but no damage or injuries have been immediately reported.

USGS geophysicist Dale Grant said Saturday that a lot of residents felt the quake in Sanpete County, but it’s unlikely to cause significant damage. He says it’s also not an uncommon occurrence in the area.

Neil Johnson, a Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher, says there have been no reports of damage or injuries, though he received five calls about the quake.

The USGS website shows more than 40 people reported the quake feeling weak to light.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations says the quake struck around 7 p.m. and six small aftershocks followed within an hour, the biggest being a magnitude-2.7 temblor.
