Agency Reports Earthquakes In Idaho, Yellowstone

Posted: Updated:

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A series of small earthquakes sent jolts across a corner of southeast Idaho Sunday night
    
The U.S. Geological Survey says two smaller earthquakes were also recorded inside the boundary of Yellowstone National Park in recent days.
    
Temblors of 4.2 and 3.6 magnitude were recorded in the Lava Hot Springs area. Authorities say the jolts generated calls from concerned residents, but so far there is no damage or injuries attributed to the temblors.
    
Both quakes are considered mild and not strong enough to cause severe damage.
    
The two earthquakes recorded in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park were also small - magnitude of 2.9 and 2.7. One hit Friday in an area 40 miles southeast of Gardiner, while the other was recorded Sunday night closer to West Yellowstone, Mont.
