Earthquake Hazards
Geological and seismological studies show that earthquakes are likely to happen in any of several active zones in Idaho and adjacent states. Idaho has experienced two large earthquakes in historical times- the 1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake (M7.3) and the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake (M6.9).
