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.
