ST. GEORGE — An earthquake measuring 3.0 magnitude centered a mile and a half north of Enoch according to the U.S. Geological Survey provided a bit of a shake and perhaps a wake-up call to Iron County at 6:29 a.m. Sunday morning.
According to the USGS’ shake map, the quake would have produced light shaking in Enoch, Cedar City and Parowan — not capable of causing damage or even fallen objects, but enough to be felt. And according to “Did you feel it” reports on the USGS site, residents in Enoch and Parowan reported feeling light shaking.
According to equations provided by Omni Calculator, the intensity of the temblor was the equivalent of half a ton of TNT being exploded just north of Enoch.
