SODA SPRINGS — Locals have been slightly jarred by minor earthquakes for two days in a row.

A 3.3 magnitude earthquake hit 5 miles east of Soda Springs on Monday around 4:50 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

And on Tuesday, a 3.2 magnitude earthquake hit around 10:15 a.m., slightly farther east of Soda Springs than the first.

According to the USGS, it is possible to feel this magnitude of earthquake, though many may not recognize it. They feel similar to the vibrations made by a passing semi-truck.

Earthquakes are not uncommon in Soda Springs as it is a geologically active area. Several hundred small earthquakes occurred in the area during September 2017 during an earthquake swam.
