BOZEMAN, MT – a 4.1 magnitude earthquake took place about 25 miles east of Bozeman, Montana, just north of interstate 90 around 12:28 PM Monday. The depth is estimated to be about 5 kilometers beneath the surface (3.1 Miles).

No damage has been reported, but light shaking was observed near the epicenter in Livingston, Montana according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Just under 250 reports of shaking have been submitted by the general public.

Earthquakes are common in the northern Rocky Mountains along the Idaho, Montana and Wyoming border – but most are too small to be felt. Shaking was felt as far away as Helena, Montana almost 100 miles northwest of the epicenter.
