CHALLIS, Idaho (AP) — A 4.9 magnitude earthquake in remote Custer County triggers rock slides but causes no damages or injuries.

Linda Lumpkin, a dispatcher for the sheriff’s office says everyone there felt it but they received no reports of damages.

The earthquake was recorded at 10:44 a.m. and was centered about 4 miles east of Challis, a small town of about 1,000 in the center of the state surrounded by U.S. National Forest land.

Limpkin says it caused rock slides that blocked some lanes on several roads, so sheriff’s deputies went out to direct traffic as the transportation department started clean-up.

    Solution to stop Earthquakes on earth is to trace the last 8 earthquakes from its origin and depth’s in all seismic labs. I’d guess some where in New Zealand. When the exact location is pin pointed. Leave a 1/4 mile around exact point and run a channel 1/4 mile wide around 1/4 mile solid area of point and dig it 100 feet deeper than the deepest earthquake of last 8 quakes. ( A earthquake needs solids to work any distance. If the earthquake starts from the main point and its travel can only go 1/4 mile. It stops because at that point there isn’t anymore solid ground to travel through.)  In the Covington Who’s Who Society’s web site shows all but 2 of my Disaster Solutions for all to see & use. I’m The Major Disaster Solutionist American Master and I have figured out all of Nature’s Disaster’s by using solutions  and personally been giving each to those in need worldwide since 1998. A hobby of mine, like the Hurricane solution Governor Christi used in 2010 was my Hurricane solution and I was made MAN OF THE YEAR by Strathmore Who’s Who and honored by Cambridge Who’s Who and  Standford Who’s Who. Have a nice day.   Mike
