RANDOLPH, Rich County (DESERET NEWS)  — Shannon Butler was cooking at a restaurant in Randolph Thursday when the earth started shaking and knocked her into a nearby counter.

“It shook us pretty good,” said Stacey Showalter, who also works at the Gator Drive-In and Game Room. “Some things came off the shelves, the cupboards popped open and pictures came off the wall.”

A 4.9 magnitude earthquake was reported at 5:59 p.m. five miles northeast of Randolph, near the Utah-Wyoming border, Thursday — the largest earthquake in Utah in 18 years.
