Western Montana rattled by strong earthquakes – Los Angeles Times

Two strong earthquakes have hit western Montana.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck early Thursday about six miles southeast of Lincoln.

A magnitude 4.5 quake rattled the same general area within a half hour of the bigger one.

The Independent Record reports that people felt the magnitude 5.8 earthquake as far away as Bozeman, Idaho, and Great Falls.

A 76-year-old resident of Helena, which is about 34 miles away from the quake’s epicenter, said it was the strongest seismic activity that he had ever felt.

Ray Anderson said his wife told him the temblor woke up the dogs.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damages.
