Some residents in Southern Alberta felt the earth move Tuesday afternoon,  following an earthquake that struck central Idaho.

That quake, which measured 6.5 magnitude, hit at 5:52 p.m.

It was only 200 km away from Boise, the capital of Idaho, where people reportedly feeling major shaking, but no significant damage has been reported.   It had a shallow depth of just 10 kilometres, which would explain why it was felt from such a distance away.

The Calgary Emergency Management Agency confirmed the earthquake poses no threat to the city and should have no impact on city infrastructure

The last time Calgarians felt a large earthquake was in 2017, when a 5.8-magnitude quake shook Montana
