The Boundary County city of Bonners Ferry is the latest bizarre target on an ISIS hit list.

The so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has claimed responsibility for the cyber attack of North American credit units, websites of multiple U.S. municipalities, and even a Northwest winery—Latah Creek Winery in Spokane, Wash. 

And now the Hagadone News Network is reporting that officials with Boundary County in Idaho's Panhandle are working with the FBI to investigate the fact that Bonners Ferry is the only Idaho city on a list of 50 municipalities being threatened by ISIS.

Boundary County Incident Commander Bob Graham told the Hagadone News Network he had briefed county officials "and that they had outlined what kind of reaction there would be if there was a credible threat that could involve local agencies."

"ISIS itself is not a measurable threat to Boundary County," said Graham, "but there are (potentially explosive) products out there, and people irritated with the government or an individual have that capability easily available."
