Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey say the magnitude 4.9 temblor’s epicenter was about nine miles west of Fort Washakie on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Last week, a small earthquake hit the area around Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park. No damage was reported in either incident.
