More than 50,000 people lost electricity in the Salt Lake City area, said utility Rocky Mountain Power early Wednesday, March 18.
Thousands of residents fled their homes and lost power after a 5.7-magnitude earthquake hit Salt Lake City and its suburbs.
The earthquake also closed the city’s airport.
“The airport is not currently operational. The FAA tower, terminals, and concourses have been evacuated. The road to the airport has been opened so that passengers can be picked-up,” Salt Lake City Airport said via Twitter.
