POCATELLO -- Police agencies in western Wyoming and eastern Idaho say two small earthquakes occurring near each other on Friday and Saturday did no damage.

The United States Geological Survey says a 3.3 magnitude quake early Saturday morning about 15 miles from Afton, Wyo., followed a 3.6 magnitude quake about 6 miles from Wilson, Wyo.., on Friday evening.

A police dispatcher in Afton says the agency received no reports of any damage.

Police in Idaho Falls, about 60 miles from the temblors, say they received no reports.

However, KIFI-TV and the Idaho State Journal in eastern Idaho say residents in the area felt the first quake and reported them to the news outlets.
