Nearly an hour ago the United States Geological Survey reported a 3.7-magnitude earthquake in Converse County, 21 mi northeast of Casper, Natrona County, Wyoming, USA at a depth of 11.3km at around 9:50pm (GMT -6).

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.

The earthquake was most likely felt as a light vibration by a lot of people residing close to the epicenter. Some towns or cities that might have felt the weak shaking include Rolling Hills (pop. 440) located 7 miles from the epicenter, and Mercedes (pop. 2,600) 9 miles away.
