MOAB, Utah — A 4.5-magnitude earthquake struck near the Utah-Colorado border Monday morning and was felt in Moab.

Moab City Police stated the shaking was felt in their jurisdiction, but so far there are no reports of injuries or damages associated with the earthquake.

The quake struck at a depth of 0.8 kilometers and was reported at 10:22 a.m. MT.

The quake was initially reported to be above a 5.0 magnitude and then listed at 4.6. Later Monday, the USGS stated it is a 4.5.
