An hour ago a 4.1-magnitude struck Musselshell County, 54 mi northeast of Billings, Yellowstone County, Montana at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Towns or cities that might have felt the shaking include Melstone (pop. 110) located 17 miles from the epicenter, Lockwood (pop. 6,800) located 49 miles from the epicenter, and Billings (pop. 110,300) 54 miles away.
