5.8 Richters Earthquake Has Struck Montana!!! Looks Like Near Capital of Helena!!! Felt In Several States!!!. .

I will have an update on all this to come, but right now it appears a BIG EARTHQUAKE struck Western Montana and right at the moment USGS is leaving the magnitude UNCHANGED at a 5.8 and looks like more towards area where epicenter of BIG 1958 Earthquake struck there. . . but allow me to have all that at a later time, right now here's some current USGS including a list of nearby places for reference and I'll give you what I have for felt reports before I publish this, too, page says currently OVER 10,000 of them and map locates it around 100 Miles North of Yellowstone Park:

5.8 - 9km SE of Lincoln, Montana

Nearby Places:

As of Late Wednesday there is now a new San Francisco-Pacifica "Earthquake Minute" and here's the Transcript@

This one was a fairly big earthquake, but when you combine it with those others that follow. . . none of these really added up to posting this Edition of EQ Blog, so now here are all of those others mostly from the 4th of July Holiday date when I didn't post my EQ Blog due to being very busy with a lot of other stuff! Here's a Frazier Park, California Shaker just north of Los Angeles and very near Fort Tijon where we might now be watching for 7 Richters due to that newest alert:

Kind of a bigger one for across the border and although felt in San Diego. . . this is the entire felt report for this one, too:

Exact Moment of the July Full Moon will be on July 8, at 11:09pm CDT, and 9:09pm PDT. The Full Moon Window will then start late on July 7 at those times, or Friday!!!

You can almost count on California getting one of those earthquakes!!! That would be the 5 from movement of the North American Tectonic Plate from Cyclone Mora, the 6 from movement of Cyclone Donna, and now the 7 from landfall of Typhoon Nanmadol at Japan!!! ALL For California, too!!! Going to be getting a lot busier around "Earthquake Central" with all that happening so please stay-tuned!!!

Looks like Montana Earthquake was felt in a lot of State of Washington, Idaho, and says Salt Lake City and I also notice felt in Yellowstone, but I will sure have an update in the future!!! Right now I'll publish this and hope there won't be too much reports of damage up that way, although that will all be coming along the way, too!!! EQ Guy

Here's the transcript from this weeks "Earthquake Minute" on local community radio on Friday@
