CHALLIS, Idaho (AP) — Custer County officials in central Idaho say there's no damage from an earthquake that shook the area yesterday morning. The U.S. Geological Survey says the 3.7-magnitude temblor was located about a mile east of Challis and about a mile deep. A spokeswoman 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.
