A magnitude 5.7 earthquake shook Utah’s Salt Lake City area Wednesday morning, knocking out power to many in the region and prompting the FAA to ground all flights at Salt Lake City International Airport.

The United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) quake report indicates the epicenter was three miles north-northeast of Magna, Utah, and it occurred at a depth of 6.3 miles.

Utah Emergency Management said this was the largest earthquake since 1992.

The quake comes as Utah residents are adjusting to Covid-19 shutdowns, including school cancelations, shorter business hours, and social gathering limits.
