Small quake hits remote area of northern Arizona

Posted: Updated:

PAGE, Ariz. (AP) - A small earthquake has struck a remote area along the Arizona-Utah border.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 3.1 earthquake hit about 8:30 a.m. MST Monday. It was centered 22 miles from Page, Ariz., and 82 miles east of Hurricane, Utah.

USGS spokeswoman Leslie Gordon says the quake's intensity was small enough that only people who were fairly close to the epicenter would have felt it.

The USGS says the Colorado Plateau is an area of low seismic activity and any earthquakes that have struck there typically have been small.
