2 earthquakes rattle Northwest Colorado last week 26.4.2017 Steamboat Pilot
The earth made some rumbles at about 11 a.m. on Earth Day, Saturday when a minor earthquake originating roughly 3 miles west, northwest of Rangley left some people feeling shaken. “It was the most bizarre thing. There was this boom. The house seemed to be spinning. I swear I saw it moving side to side. There was this loud noise like a siren. There was a crashing sound. Then it was over, completely over,” said Rangley resident Mickey Allen. The earthquake registered a moment magnitude (Mw) of 3.7 at a depth of about 4 miles (6.4 kilometers). “Typically a magnitude 3.0 to 3.9 event would be only slightly felt as a vibration, maybe similar to that of a passing truck.
