Twelve earthquakes of intensity V or greater (Modified Mercalli scale) have centered within the borders of South Dakota. All the shocks were rather localized, except that of 1911 which was felt over an area of approximately 100,000 km2. Some earthquakes from neighboring States were felt strongly in South Dakota.
