The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a 4.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Bondurant area around 11:23 PM Tuesday night (October 30, 2007). The quake was located approximately 12 miles Northeast of Bondurant and 26 miles East of Hoback. It occurred at a depth of 3.1 miles.

The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office dispatch told us Wednesday morning they had not received any reports associated with the quake. They received a call from CNN News late Tuesday night asking about damages.
