On This Fateful Day Idaho Was Victim To Its Largest Earthquake Ever

We don’t worry about earthquakes here in Idaho very much. This type of natural disaster just doesn’t occur here very often (besides the bizarre swarm of earthquakes we experienced this summer). However, that doesn’t mean earthquakes never strike in the Gem State. You might remember the day that one of Idaho’s most violent and terrifying earthquakes occurred. This event may have happened 34 years ago, but the memory of it still lingers today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
