Trio of tremblors bump Bondo
JACKSON HOLE, WYO - A cluster of minor earthquakes rippled through pews and brunch tables across the valley late Sunday morning. The three tremors all occurred near Bondurant and about 18 miles from Jackson. The highest magnitude tremblor posted a 4.2 on the Richter scale. There were no reports of injuries or damage.
The first earthquake registered a 3.8 and was centered very near the Bryan Flats area atop Beaver Mountain. It occurred at 10:41 a.m. A second shaker was bigger. It registered a 4.2 at 11:08 a.m. It was just south of the first quake between Shepard, Mumford, Adams, and Willow creeks. Seven minutes later, a third and final earthquake shook the hillside across the highway from Cliff Creek Road on 191. It registered a 3.2 on the Richter scale.
All three earthquakes were centered at a depth of 3.1 miles – relatively shallow and typical of most earthquakes in the valley. The USGS website received feedback ranking the 4.2 earthquake with a “Did You Feel It Score” of IV (17 Jackson residents responded in addition to one in Wilson and one in Bondurant), meaning shaking was light and damage was not present. The other two quakes rated a score of II, meaning they were felt as weak if at all.
