USA – M 4.0 – Powerful aftershock near Grand Teton National Park and Jackson

Earthquake Report comment :
For the second day in a row,  a serious quake happened in the Grand Teton National Forest, only 20 miles from Jackson and from the National Park.
The aftershock was felt as a light to moderate shaking by people living within a radius of 30 miles from the epicenter.
Although people are mentioning shaking up to IV Mercalli (light shaking), USGS calculated numbers are mentioning  I to II Mercalli (none to weak shaking).  Light to moderate shaking would be strongest near the epicenter in the wilderness area.
