ELKO, Nev., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Northern Nevada was jostled by a magnitude of 3.5 earthquake, seismologists said.

The quake occurred Friday night 137 miles outside Elko, about 225 miles from Salt Lake City.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered at a fairly shallow depth of 5 miles.

The quake broke a string of 10 consecutive days in the area without a quake measuring 3.0 or greater, the Los Angeles Times said.
