Quake this morning felt in Afton, one hour before Anchorage was rocked

STAR VALLEY, WYO – Star Valley residents this morning reported hearing a “boom” and then a bit of shaking as a reported 3.1M earthquake was recorded this morning at 9:34am.

The quake occurred this morning on the Idaho-Wyoming border just southwest of Afton, Wyo. The tremor preceded by about an hour a 7.o magnitude earthquake (a corresponding 5.8M aftershock) experienced just north of Anchorage, Alaska. That earthquake has prompted officials to issue a tsunami warning until further notice.
