Just felt a crazy earthquake.— Paighten🆒Harkins (@PaightenHarkins) March 18, 2020
That was a massive earthquake. Don’t think I’ve experienced anything like that. Hope everyone is okay. Wow.— Mitch Harper (@Mitch_Harper) March 18, 2020
Wow, that earthquake was heavy. Felt strongly in Draper. Hope everyone is ok.— Cameron Jensen (@cjenser33) March 18, 2020
Well, that’s another way to be woken up. My house was rattling for a solid 4-5 seconds from that earthquake! Chandeliers are still swaying. Everyone ok?— David Nixon (@D_Nixon) March 18, 2020
Whoa that felt huge in Clearfield!— Jeff Hansen (@rakoto10) March 18, 2020
People felt that Earthquake along the whole Wasatch Front as far as I can tell looking at my TL.— Skyler Hardman (@Skydiz) March 18, 2020
sitting on a toilet is both a good and bad place to be during an earthquake— Layton Shumway (@theshums) March 18, 2020
bad: pants around ankles, not near door jamb, unprotected
good: well, at least it won’t matter if I crap myself out of fear
That was felt from Spanish Fork to Clearfield. That’s a big quake.— P Norton (@P_Norton) March 18, 2020
Earthquakes and plagues...my 8-year-old self is telling me to get ready for the end.— Harper Anderson (@harperdanderson) March 18, 2020
My 32-year-old self doesn’t even have enough faith to want to go to church every Sunday.
At 7:15a, I decided to move back to California. You can’t have snow and Earthquakes.— Robby Peckham (@robbypeckham) March 18, 2020
Pick a lane, Utah.
Huge stacks of toilet paper tumbled down in homes across Utah...— Wasatch Snow Forecast (@WasatchSnow) March 18, 2020
Virus, earthquake, end of the world stuff and I’m realizing there’s nothing on my bucket list.— Lawsy (check mark) (@llawsy) March 18, 2020
We had a 5.7 earthquake out of Magna this morning - felt across much of the state. Follow proper safety measures in the event of any additional aftershocks or quakes.— Gov. Gary Herbert (@GovHerbert) March 18, 2020
We felt it down in Utah County. Our house shook, felt some fading waves. Read that it hit you guys relatively hard. Glad you're ok, but yeah, what the hell.— May Ryan (@mayiwrite) March 18, 2020
Just woke up to a pretty intense 5.7 earthquake here in Utah county. Everything in my room was shaking.— Alek Arend (@alekarend) March 18, 2020
2020 needs to chill out ASAP.

Earthquake currently a 5-seed in Lunardi's bracketology update. Couldn't come close to top-seeded Coronavirus, but on the same line as BYU's best season since Jimmer Fredette.— Sean Walker (@ActuallyDSW) March 18, 2020

Good luck to all of you who now decide you better run to Costco today. God be with you in these trying times 🙏🏽😂— P Norton (@P_Norton) March 18, 2020
A heads up that I have been asked to exit Vivint Smart Home Arena due to ongoing seismic activity. Our national affiliate, FOX Sports Radio, will be on-air until we are cleared to get back into the building and resume normal radio operations on the @ZoneSportsNet.— Yawk Talk (Jake Hatch) 哈雅各 (@JacobCHatch) March 18, 2020
