Montana hit by 5.6 magnitude quake

(CNN) -- A 5.6 magnitude earthquake rumbled through southwest Montana late Monday, according to the National Earthquake Information Center Web site.

The NEIC said the moderate quake struck at 10:08 p.m. (12:08 a.m. Tuesday ET) and was centered 13 miles north-northeast of Dillon, Montana, and 220 miles northeast of Boise, Idaho.

A spokeswoman for the Beaverhead County Sheriff's Department said there were several reports of damage but no reports of injuries immediately after the temblor.

Beaverhead County Commissioner Mike McGinley told CNN in a phone interview that so far, the damage found has been limited to pictures being shaken off walls and other minor incidents.
