(WEST YELLOWSTONE)- A sizable quake rattled the mountains west of Yellowstone Park this morning, registering a 4.3 magnitude.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 6:14 Monday morning with the epicenter about 32-miles west of West Yellowstone. That would put the quake's location north of the Continental Divide, in the Centennial Valley.
That area is sparsely populated, and even an hour after the quake only a couple of people had reported feeling the quake to U.S.G.S.
The region on the west side of Yellowstone frequently has several small quakes per month, but Monday's quake was larger than usual.
