      Just going to leave this here. Trendline of depth of recent quakes vs. longitude. Latitude is S. Temple Street. Longitude of surface intersection around 700 E. Firmly tongue-in-cheek, but what if?

      So most of the quakes are at South Temple and 700 east?

        Somehow my original reply disappeared.   Just showing how the quake centers are moving due east, essentially parallel to South Temple and getting closer-and-closer to the surface and wondering where they might reach the surface and potentially cause some surface cracks/movement.  Turns out a linear extrapolation puts it near 700E, but from the cross-section below one can see the fault line does not slope in a straight line, but may curve up.

      What if City Creek Center would fall into a fissure near the surface?

        Free Masons and Governors mansion won’t like it.

        Also could potentially damage a major hospital in the area.
