The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology recorded the quake at 8:41 this morning 4-miles east southeast of Lincoln. That puts the epicenter 35-miles northwest of Helena in Lewis and Clark County.
The quake was at moderate depth of 9-point-9 miles beneath the surface.
Geologists are still checking into the quake but say it may have been felt around Helena and as far west as Seeley Lake.
