      There's been a whole lot of shaking going on for our neighbours to the south.

      While several early-morning earthquakes were shaking Nevada and California, a second notable earthquake has rumbled in Central Idaho this week.

      A 4.3-magnitude quake hit at 3:54 a.m. local time (2:54 a.m. B.C. time) today (November 13), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

      At a depth of 17 kilometres (11 miles), the epicentre was located 25 kilometres (16 miles) northwest of Stanley, Idaho; 117 kilometres (73 miles) northeast of Boise, Idaho; and 119 kilometres (74 miles) northeast of Garden City, Idaho.

      It was preceded and followed by several smaller quakes, ranging from 2.5- to 2.7-magnitude, in the same area.

      Meanwhile, these latest quakes follow a 4.0-magnitude temblor that occurred in the same region earlier this week on November 6.

      Also this past week, a 4.0-magnitude quake struck off the coast of British Columbia, between Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii on November 10.

      All of this seismic activity follows a major 6.5-magnitude quake that shook the region on March 31, followed by a 4.8-magnitude aftershock about half an hour later. One of the larger aftershocks, measuring 4.6-magnitude, took place on June 24.
