Last night, a light magnitude 4.2 quake occurred at shallow depth near Stanley, Idaho. It was felt widely near its epicenter, mostly as a gentle rolling or bumping motion.
The quake was likely yet another aftershock of the large 6.5 quake of March 31 80 miles northeast of Boise, which was a result of sudden slip along the Sawtooth fault, a 60-km-long normal fault extending along the eastern base of the Sawtooth Range.
Aftershocks of such larger quakes often continues for many months.
