Northern Arizona residents were shaken,
literally, overnight by a pair of earthquakes. 
A magnitude 4.7 quake north of Sedona was felt throughout the region,
with residents of Flagstaff saying the shaking lasted for as long as ten
seconds.

Seismologists say the quake hit
just before midnight and was centered about seven miles underground.  There were no reports of damage or
injury.  About an hour earlier, a
magnitude 3.4 earthquake was reported near Parker.  Though Arizona certainly isn’t known for it’s
seismic activity, seismologists say there are dozens of earthquakes here each
year.  Most of them, however, are so
small that they go largely undetected by most residents.  Officials at the Arizona Earthquake
Information Center at NAU say they assume the quakes are result of fault
activity, but a closer examination is needed to determine which ones touched
off the shaking.
