The 3.1 magnitude earthquake was reported around 10 a.m. and occurred about 1km NNW of Kersey.
Residents in Greeley, Lasalle and Evans reported feeling the earthquake. According to William Yeck, a research geophysicist from the National Earthquake Information Center said a similar quake happened in June of 2014 near the most recent earthquake. In and article in the Coloradan, Yeck was quoted saying "There's a sequence that started in 2014 around June 1," said Yeck. "It was a magnitude 3.2 and some earthquakes afterwards. Those were linked to wastewater injection. This earthquake occurred fairly close to that but we can't say if it's either a natural earthquake or a human caused earthquake."
