I didn't feel it, as I was asleep, but apparently it could be felt in SLC, even though it was centered in Wells, NV.

I wonder if there will be any aftershocks.

During class at about 11:15 or so, I felt the ground start shaking. People near me were looking around and wondering what was going on. There were at least two smaller similar events minutes later. The first one was the biggest and I could feel it and see the lights shaking above me. The other ones afterwards were much weaker. I believe I was feeling an aftershock!

Since we were watching a movie, I don't think the professor was paying attention but I know what I felt.

It lasted between 5 and 10 seconds and was kind of weak.

I was listening to KSL on the way back from class and they were saying that chandeliers in downtown SLC were shaking when the main one hit at about 7:16 this morning MST.

Reports from Wells are that a lot of historic buildings have damage, but so far I don't believe anyone was seriously hurt.
