Minor earthquake recorded 18 miles north of Glenwood Springs
The earthquake occurred at a depth of 2.7 kilometers (1.7 miles) around 1:02 a.m., west of Triangle Mountain, according to the USGS Earthquake Center.
Anyone who felt the shaking or notices any damage can file a report at Earthquake-Report.com. According to the independent earthquake-reporting site, a 2.7-magnitude quake is described as “weak” and “felt only by a few persons … especially on upper floors of buildings.”
Given the remote location with no structure, and the time of the quake, it’s unlikely anyone around Glenwood Springs felt much at all.
Once a quake gets above 3 in magnitude, it’s possible a vibration “similar to the passing of a truck” could be felt, according to the site.
