JACKSON, Wyo. — If you felt your house shake this afternoon, you’re not alone.

Buckrail reporters felt it, too, and so did readers in Jackson. The University of Utah Seismograph Station reported a 2.7 magnitude earthquake four kilometers (2.5 miles) northeast of Jackson at around 4:25 p.m. and passed the information on to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). “Felt It” reports backed it up.

If you felt it, send a report to USGS to help them improve their data.
