Small Earthquake Rumbles Montrose

By  | 

Officials are confirming that what at least one Montrose resident felt on Wednesday morning was in fact an earthquake.

According to our friends at the Montrose Daily Press, a small tremor rippled through the area about 14 miles east of Montrose at 2:53am Wednesday.

According to a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Center in Golden, Colorado, the quake measured a low 2.4 on the Richter scale.

Officials say the Montrose area does not receive much seismic activity, but quakes big enough to be felt occur a few times a year.
