    (CNN) A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck in western Montana early Thursday, shortly after midnight local time, according to the United States Geological Survey.

    The earthquake was 13.6 kilometers in depth and was located about 33 miles northwest of Helena, the state's capital, according to USGS. It struck about 7 miles southeast of Lincoln, which has a population of 1,013.

    Residents as far as Spokane and Seattle, Washington, reportedly felt the tremors, reported CNN affiliate KRTV.

    A series of aftershocks soon followed with magnitudes ranging from 3.1 to 4.9, clustered near Lincoln.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    It's CNN, so I'm surprised they haven't blamed The President and Interior Secretary Zinke already. They will.

    Actually, Lincoln is sitting on top of part of a 'resurgent dome'. It's just plain old 'bad luck' that a primordial magma-bubble exists under there.

    According to Roy Hinckley, PhD, all you have to do to stop a volcano is place a bomb inside of it. When the bomb explodes, the eruption will reverse itself and the lava will flow backwards into the caldera.

    Otherwise, I think you have to throw a virgin into it.

    It would be much easier to find a bomb.
