4.5 magnitude earthquake in western Colorado likely human caused
DOVE CREEK, Colo. -- A 4.5 magnitude earthquake Monday morning in western Colorado may have been triggered by a salinity control project. The earthquake's epicenter is located in the Paradox Basin, a remote part of the state. However, it was felt by people more than 100 miles away. Alex Koch is one of many Coloradoans who felt the quake. He lives about 20 miles from the epicenter.
