The strongest earthquake in more than 75 years struck Utah early Thursday night. The magnitude 4.9 quake shook parts of the Beehive State at 5:59 p.m. Mountain time (4:49 p.m. Pacific), according to the University of Utah’s Earthquake Information Center.

No injuries, and only minor damage, were reported by the Deseret News.

The quake’s epicenter was eight kilometers northeast of Randolph, Utah.

The quake was reported by more than 280 residents across the state, the university said in a release.
