CHALLIS, Idaho (AP) — Custer County officials in central Idaho say there's no damage from an earthquake that shook the area Monday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the 3.7-magnitude temblor occurred about 10:20 a.m. and was located about a mile east of Challis and about a mile deep.
Linda Lumpkin of the Custer County Sheriff's Office says the quake was widely felt among residents in the sparsely populated area.
But she says residents are used to the ground shaking after a swarm of quakes up to 4.9 in magnitude last spring that peaked in mid-April.
The quakes have occurred in an area that produced Idaho's largest recorded quake, a 6.9-magnitude rumbling in 1983 near 12,667-foot Borah Peak, Idaho's tallest peak.
