A magnitude 6.5 earthquake rippled through the state of Idaho at 5 p.m., March 31st. The U.S. Geological Survey has already released a report, stating that seismic activity took place in the central area, with the epicenter 73 miles northeast of Meridian, Idaho and near the mountains.

No casualties or property damage has been reported, but the unexpected afternoon jolting has left people startled — especially the residents of Boise. They are currently sharing their experiences on social media — furniture shaking, ground vibrating, domestic animals panicking.

Boise community is following the shelter-in-place COVID-19 protocol and the earthquake found most of its members in their houses.

According to some of the residents, an earthquake this intense is quite unusual for the area. Its seismic waves have apparently reached Montana and Utah as well.

Matthew is our Founding Father who updates you on everything that is crucial for the U.S. When little Matthew used to be asked who he wanted to be when he grew up, the answer was "Elvis". That was a long-lasting effect that the 3-year-old Matthew got from watching an Elvis impersonator contest on TV. His parents spent the next decade quietly dreading that he would run away to Hollywood one day. Instead Matthew won a scholarship in Barcelona, graduated in Business Administration and spent four years building a career in HR. Journalism was a happy accident that Matthew got into thanks to a girlfriend; she was an intern at The Denver Post. Starting with copywriting gigs, he quickly moved to the more serious stuff for The Working In, FigureIT, and The County Watch. Matthew currently resides in good old Denver, keeping a watchful eye on everything that makes America tick. And yes, he still loves Elvis. Email:moran@regionalusa.com
