Earthquake Shakes Central Idaho
CHALLIS, Idaho (AP) — A 4.9-magnitude earthquake in remote Custer County triggered rock slides but causes no damage or injuries.
Sheriff's office dispatcher Linda Lumpkin says everyone there felt it but they received no reports of damage. The earthquake was recorded at 10:44 a.m. Saturday and was centered about 4 miles east of Challis, a town of about 1,000 in the center of the state surrounded by U.S. National Forest land.
Limpkin says it caused rock slides that blocked some lanes on several roads, so sheriff's deputies went out to direct traffic as the transportation department started clean-up.
