BOISE, Idaho. (AP) — An earthquake struck northeast of Boise near the area where a larger earthquake hit in late March.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 4.4 quake struck at 6:21 p.m. Wednesday about 21 miles (34 kilometers) northwest of the rural mountain town of Stanley.

About 250 people reported feeling light shaking across much of the central part of the state Wednesday evening.

A magnitude 6.5 temblor shook on March 31 near that area. There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries.
