World's most isolated m6 earthquake

I just had to highlight this.  They got an intensity from it.  Fur trappers?  With satellite internet?  I am amazed.

I once read a big study on earthquakes in stable continental zones.  Just from the left-over stresses and slow rock processes, we can expect an m6 anywhere, once in a while.  You can calculate the odds (very low) but shows that earthquakes end up in the weirdest places.  Zones, such as Toronto and Oklahoma have odds a thousand times worse.
