One of two missing miners was found alive Saturday, a day after an earthquake trapped him in the mine about 1,600 feet underground. Rescuers found Dan Jereb walking in the Solvay Minerals mine about 5:15 p.m. He had been missing since a 5.4-magnitude quake hit the region Friday morning, raining rocks and dust on miners. Jereb was taken to a hospital. It was not immediately clear if he was injured or if he knew the whereabouts of the second miner.

The second of two miners missing almost two days 1,600 feet underground suffered a heart attack as rescuers lifted him out of the mine Sunday. He died hours later. The other miner, rescued Saturday night, was in good condition at a hospital. The miners got lost after a 5.4-magnitude earthquake hit the region Friday morning, raining rocks on workers inside the Solvay Minerals trona mine in southwestern Wyoming. Trona is used in making baking soda and glass.

An earthquake shook a mining area in southwestern Wyoming on Friday, and two workers were missing in a mine about 1,600 feet underground. The 5.4 magnitude quake hit at 8:26 a.m. MST, said the National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo. There were 55 miners inside the Solvay Minerals' trona mine at the time of the earthquake, officials said. Fifty-three came out, with nine suffering minor injuries from falling debris. Trona is a mineral used in making baking soda and glass.

A swarm of small earthquakes shook the nation's oldest national park Monday, rousing tourists but causing no damage or injuries. The strongest quake was a magnitude 4.4 temblor that struck at 1:03 a.m. It was centered on the northern end of Yellowstone Lake, park spokeswoman Joan Anzelmo said. "That first one woke up most people in the area. It was strongly felt by (Lake Hotel) guests, in particular," Anzelmo said.

A swarm of about 25 small earthquakes in central Idaho during the last three weeks has prompted scientists to bring in additional seismographs in hopes of finding a cause, an official said. “We have our theories, but we need more data,” Idaho Geological Survey research geologist Bill Phillips told the Los Angeles Times. A University of Utah engineer drove to Challis late Tuesday with portable seismometers that will be deployed around the epicenter of the recent earthquakes, three of which have surpassed magnitude 4. The largest, a 4.9, was recorded Sunday.
