CENTERVILLE, Utah, March 23, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Centerville police tweeted Monday morning the Utah Department of Emergency Management has asked residents to gather and report any residential damage resulting from Wednesday’s 5.7 magnitude earthquake near Magna.

“If you believe your residence sustained damage from the earthquake please email with your name, address, estimated damage total, and contact information,” the tweet said. “If possible, please take pictures of the damage and attach it in your email.”
