SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) — Scientists say a minor earthquake has shaken the Utah Valley, but apparently causing no injuries or property damage.

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations report the magnitude 3.7 quake occurred around 4:27 a.m. Saturday. The epicenter of the shock was north-central Utah, about nine miles southeast of Salem beneath the Wasatch Range.

Seismologists say residents in Salem, Spanish Fork, Provo and other cities in the Utah Valley reported feeling it.

They say at least three smaller seismic events followed the quake.
