University of Utah Seismograph Stations reported two earthquakes near Soda Springs and Montpelier on Wednesday night.

A magnitude 2.9 earthquake occurred around 8:25 p.m. followed by a magnitude 3.4 earthquake at 8:38 p.m., officials said.

The earthquakes occurred southeast of Soda Springs and northeast of Montpelier.

“These quakes were felt in Soda Springs, ID, like the Sulphur Peak sequence,” according to the University of Utah Seismograph Stations Facebook page.

The Sulphur Peak sequence was an earthquake swarm involving hundreds of temblors that occurred in September 2017 in the Soda Springs area. None of those quakes caused injuries or serious damage.

Emergency dispatchers in the area said they did not receive any reports of damage or injuries resulting from Wednesday night’s temblors.

Earthquakes of the magnitude that struck Wednesday night can typically cause noticeable vibrations but any resulting damage is usually very minor.
