On Wednesday, an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.0 was recorded in Manhattan.

Manhattan, located just 16 west of Bozeman, has been a hotbed of seismic activity as of late. In October 2018, seven separate quakes measuring 2.5 or more on the Richter scale were reported in the Manhattan area.

The latest quake, measuring a magnitude of 3.0 was reported at 10:06 p.m on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. It is the first reported earthquake of 2.5 or more so far this year in the Manhattan area.

26 people reported feeling the quake on Wednesday night.

I am a resident of Manhattan and live less than two blocks away from the epicenter of the earthquake. I can honestly say I have a hard time telling the difference between an earthquake and a train going by.
