6.4 Earthquake Hits Southern Idaho in US
A 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Southern Idaho in the United States, according to the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC).
So far there is no information about the possible damage done by the quake. Quakes starting with a 6.0 magnitude are considered “strong”, according to the Richter magnitude scale, and can cause moderate to strong damage to poor structures.
The earthquake comes just 12 days after a magnitude 5.7 earthquake hit near Magna, Utah.
According to the EMSC, the quake struck 153 kilometres north-east of Boise, at a depth of 10 kilometres.
