Moments ago, USGS reported a 3.1-magnitude earthquake 11 miles northeast of West Yellowstone, Gallatin County, Montana, USA at a very shallow depth of 10.9km. The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), reported the quake as a magnitude 3.0 earthquake.

As is usual, the exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised in the next hours or minutes as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Towns or cities that might have felt very weak shaking quake include West Yellowstone (pop. 1,300) located 11 miles from the epicenter.
