Aftermath of the Oct, 28, 1983 Challis Earthquake

We went into our newscast archive and found a report Darien Laird did on the Challis earthquake.

The report aired in 2011 when we were looking back at the station's 50th anniversary.

The Challis earthquake, as it's commonly known, happened the morning of Friday, October 28, 1983, at 8:06 a.m.

The epicenter was near Borah Peak, the highest point in Idaho.

Share with us what you remember of that day in the comment section below.
