A weekend for quakes in Western Montana

(SOMERS)- It was quite the weekend for earthquakes in Western Montana. The U-S Geological Survey says a pair of small quakes hit at the north end of Flathead Lake on Sunday, with one measuring 2.7 magnitude that hit just before noon. 

Then a few minutes later at 3-point-0. Both of the quakes were centered around Somers, with some people reporting they heard a rumble and felt some shaking. Normally a quake of 2.5 to 3 magnitude is about the point where people noticed an earthquake on the surface. 

And that fault near Lincoln continues to be active, with another small quake of 1.8 magnitude on Sunday, the fourth quake in that area this past week.
