LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Montana earthquake today 2013 has hit Yellowstone. The Montana earthquake today July 1, 2013 followed an earlier quake with the same epicenter. No reports of damage have yet to be indicated by local news.
Officials indicate that a Montana earthquake today struck eleven miles northeast of West Yellowstone. The quake posted 3.0 magnitude but began only eight miles below ground level, USGS tell news. As a result the quake could be felt across the region.
USGS reports to news that the quake was sixty-three miles south of Bozeman, Montana, and seventy-seven miles northeast of Rexburg, Idaho. The quake was also roughly one miles northeast of Ammon, Idaho, officials tell news. The quake was followed by a 2.6 magnitude quake near the same epicenter moments ago.
In May, a 2.5 magnitude quake struck the state. It was eight miles west of Lima. It began seventy miles northwest of Rexburg, Idaho and eighty-four miles northwest of Idaho Falls. Officials also told news at the time that the quake was eight-five miles north of Ammon, Idaho and roughly one hundred fifty miles from Helena, Montana. Like today’s quake, that May quake started near ground level. It began only two miles below the earth’s surface that month.
