Small earthquake hits along Arizona-Utah border

PAGE, AZ - A small earthquake struck a remote area along the Arizona-Utah border Monday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude 3.1 earthquake hit around 8:30 a.m.

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.
