6.5 magnitude earthquake and associated aftershocks are keeping a lot of people awake and on edge in Idaho tonight. Talked to a family member there and she said it lasted a good 30 seconds and was loud. Starting to think Mother Nature is trying to tell us something.

My brother lives in Boise and said they had a pretty good shake, 20+ seconds, but no real damage... having just gone thru the 5.7 a few weeks ago in Salt Lake I told him he's just trying to one-up us with a 6.5!
