The event was filed by the United States Geological Survey, the first seismological agency to report it.
A second report was later issued by the citizen-seismograph network of RaspberryShake, which listed it as a magnitude 3.9 earthquake as well. A third agency, The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), reported the same quake at magnitude 3.9.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Cascade (pop. 940) located 8 miles from the epicenter.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include McCall (pop. 3,100) located 20 miles from the epicenter, Weiser (pop. 5,300) 51 miles away, and Emmett (pop. 6,600) 56 miles away. In Payette (pop. 7,400, 57 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
