Earthquake: Magnitude 4.1 - UTAH

Email first stated this was a 4.1.  Update email stated 4.4.  USGS web site still has it listed as a 4.1. 

There is also an earthquake swarm in Turkey and earthquakes in Georgia (United States).  I'm listing this one because Utah is not known for seismic activity.   If this had been on the West Coast, U.S., it would not have been worth mentioning.
