BREAKING: Magnitude-4.7 Earthquake Shakes Arizona

A magnitude-4.7 earthquake hit Arizona late Sunday night, the United States Geological Survey said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage from the 10:57 p.m. MST earthquake.

 

 

 

 

The temblor's epicenter was 7 miles north of Sedona, Arizona, or 16 miles south-southwest of Flagstaff, the USGS reported.

The earthquake could be felt in areas such as Flagstaff, Prescott, Sedona, Winslow and Tuba City, Arizona.

The strongest recorded earthquake in Arizona history was a magnitude-5.6 temblor that struck near the Utah border on July 21, 1959, according to USGS records.

That 1959 quake caused minor damage in Fredonia, Arizona, and Kanab, Utah, about 9 miles (15 kilometers) north of Fredonia. A rockslide at Mather Point in the Grand Canyon was attributed to the earthquake, the USGS said.
