Minnesota attorney general is increasing charges against Derek Chauvin, Sen. Klobuchar says George Floyd's Accused Murderer Hit with Upgraded Charge, Other 3 Cops Charged All four former officers involved in George Floyd's killing now face charges, Sen. Klobuchar says

Marcus Smith, an emergency room health unit coordinator at St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center, said the hospital, about 65 miles (104 kilometers) south of the epicenter, shook but the quake didn’t interfere with the treatment of any patients. The hospital in Blaine County is on the front line of Idaho’s coronavirus outbreak, in a region with the highest per-capita rates of known COVID-19 cases in the nation outside of New York City and surrounding counties.

“It felt like a wave going through the ground, so I knew right away what it was. It just felt like waves going through the ground,” he said.The earthquake is added stress during an already stressful time for the region, but Smith said everything seemed fine, for now. “Until the next one, I guess,” Smith said. “I mean, that’s what we do. We’re all good.”

Brett Woolley, a restaurant owner in Stanley, said he heard earthquake coming before he felt it.“I heard the roar, and at first it sounded like the wind but then the roar was tremendous,” Woolley said about 10 minutes after the earthquake. “The whole house was rattling, and I started to panic. I’m sitting here perfectly still and the water next to me is still vibrating.”

Just love that fracking “...people die from running in an earthquake” That’s why I’ll stick to a light jog in an earthquake. The government is saying it's not yellowstone... which means it's definitely Yellowstone. We got like 5 days tops. I can't imagine what kind of mess we would have if a quake hit a large city causing a catastrophe on top of this pandemic with this orange nightmare of a human in the WH.

For those blaming trump or new laws passed if you think this is just rewards remember the way society has become self gratification for most including our so called politicians and celebrities. You live the selfish life you desire don’t bitch when it bites u in the ass Nature is shaking us off like fleas...😳

KingKathy11 This already is a stressful time, a Earthquake just makes everyone even more Anxious! Hopefully everyone is safe. Do Mormons believe in earthquakes? fake news. The average person only grows up to 2 meters I felt it. Kinda weird Is a super volcano going to end us all before the coronavirus can? Does earth have a mandate?

more tunnels going down for good? Felt it in Kuna, Idaho 2020 has been the longest decade ever.... Franktheshank88 Fracking town? That's what God thinks of the anti-transgender law y'all just passed. Shame on you. Near a fracking area Looks like the planet is trying to shake off a nasty cold coronavirus Trump will piss his pants... can't handle more than 1 thing at a time and usually messes up while doing it...

I ❤️ earthquakes I was just reading about this in Number 2 Corinthians: Volume 45 Guess we piss off G-D Come on Mother Nature. Now? I felt it. I was in my living room and was wondering what was shaking. Nothing fell nor broke, which I guess is a good thing. Definitely scary. The first earthquake I’ve ever experienced since living in Idaho. earthquakeidaho earthquake idaho

Brad Little signed HB 509 that barred transgender individuals from changing their sex marker on birth certificate...'

EricaJong Is Idaho a red or blue state? I ask because they may need help with this... Our planet is sending us a message! We took this shit for granted now look at us. Not yet 2020 can you JUST STOP HOLY FUCK These earthquakes are getting too close to Yellowstone 😬 We might not have to worry about Covid-19 if that puppy decides to blow.

Idaho just signed two anti-transgender laws yesterday. God is clearly angry. I felt it! Stanley is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Idaho. Stay strong, guys! God must be responding to the two anti-trans bills that Idaho passed... Yellowstone gonna blow. Yellowstone erupting? Hope everyone’s okay. Also: Fracking, amirite?

😥😥💜💙🙏🙏 Is that common there? Omg Fracking I was just talking about the huge impact of big earthquake at this time. I'm hoping there is no damage to people there. I live in Spokane Wa, it has snowed, hailed, been up to 50°, and then the quake, just! Are they common there? Yup, the world is ending...Time to drink up!

LindseyHughes girl are you okay!! Fracking. Only potatoes there anyways 🥔. There's a Potato Damage Warning out in the state... too bad the weather didn't get cancelled🤷🏻‍♂️... Twice shaked potatoes I think Mother Earth is fed up with us. Wobbling more like Idaho voted for Trump, right? Trump will help them

Red states are shaking. The ancient Chinese believed in a thing called the “mandate of heaven” It meant a country’s leaders ran the country only so long as they had the mandate How did you know when the mandate was lost? Because of things like plagues and earthquakes Just sayin’ Now it begins. so about $7 in damages

Idaho governor signs into law anti-transgender legislation Idaho Gov. Little on Monday signed into law two anti-transgender bills. One prohibits trans people from changing the sex on their birth certificates, and the other bans trans girls and women from competing in women’s sports. In the middle of a national pandemic I'm glad this dude has his priorities straight. What's next a bathroom bill where you need ID to do a nature call? What's wrong with these people? Has he even heard of hermaphrodites? It occurs about 1/1500 to 1/2000 births...what a moron. I'm 70 years old and I don't know any transgender people. But I do know that we are all protected by the Constitution. We don't need corrupted people making stupid laws designed to circumvent our Constitutional Rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. How do either of those laws affect anyone's lives other than transgender peoples? This is based on hate.

Kudos! May the ‘rona take em
