Small earthquake rattles Montana

Seismic News

DILLON, Mont. USA-- A small earthquake that rattled southwestern Montana caused no damage but could be felt about 90 miles away.

The magnitude-3.7 earthquake, which struck late Wednesday, was an aftershock of a 5.6-magnitude quake that hit the same area in July 2005, said Tom Satterly, who manages the University of Montana-Western's environmental sciences department.

"It's the biggest (aftershock) we've seen in quite a while," Stickney said.

It was centered about 15 miles northeast of Dillon and could be felt as far as Helena, said Mike Stickney, director of earthquake studies for the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology.
