A magnitude 2.5 earthquake around 1:42 p.m. June 2  centered about 20 miles from Grand Junction (26 kilometers WNW of Delta) at a depth of 4.7 kilometers.  It was felt as far east as Maysville. No damage was reported.

“Just felt a weird tremor up in Maysville and the dogs went crazy…did we just have a small earthquake?” asked an Ark Valley Voice reader, Rose Eger. We checked, and she was right.
Every time an earthquake occurs in Colorado, the public asks, “Does Colorado have earthquakes?” The short answer is yes. In comparison with California, Nevada, and Utah, major earthquakes here are infrequent. But each year, hundreds of earthquakes do occur in and around Colorado. Most aren’t felt.
Earthquakes that can be felt aren’t that common in Colorado. The last time Colorado experienced an earthquake  of any magnitude was June 22, 2011. The magnitude 5.3 natural earthquake was the largest experienced in Colorado in 100 years.
