Yellowstone Nation Park
I just don't think this sounds good at all.
Quakes in Yellowstone National Park since Monday and not one or two But There have been Numerous Quakes.
Not Large but I think they're disturbing, very troubling.
If the Super Calderon of Magma under Yellowstone, Blew,,,, It won't be Global Warming, it's be Global Die Off Time!
But Don't Worry My Friends, They are calling this Normal Activity,,,,, Really!?

Quote:The small earthquake that struck Yellowstone National Park on Thursday night was part of a swarm that has been hitting the area since Monday, scientists say.

The quake was centered near West Yellowstone, but was also felt by people in Gardiner and Bozeman.

“As of 10 a.m. this morning we had located a total of 235 earthquakes in the area,” said Jamie Farrell, University of Utah research professor of seismology.

Yellowstone gets about 1,500 to 2,000 earthquakes every year. About half of those come in earthquake swarms — lots of earthquakes in a small area in a short amount of time.
So this activity is fairly normal, Farrell said.
Most of the earthquakes in this swarm have been small — only four above magnitude 3. Thursday’s 4.5 magnitude earthquake was the only one reported to the U.S. Geological Survey website, meaning people actually felt it.

Not only was Thursday’s quake the largest in the current swarm, it was the largest in the area since March 30, 2014, when a 4.8 magnitude earthquake hit near Norris Geyser Basin, according to a news release from the University of Utah Seismograph Station.

Farrell said the swarm is the effect of normal tectonic stress in the Earth’s crust. As of Friday morning, his the University of Utah seismologists weren’t seeing anything volcanic in nature. Yellowstone National Park is home to a large volcano and the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world.
Yes, Yes, Yes, Move along *Sheeple* Nothing to see hear.
Oh, that Dark Plum of Smoke,,,, Just Ignore that,,,, it's nothing.

Sounds scary, but nothing we can do about it, so I'm not going to focus on the fear.

I'll "get my house in order" to move on to the next phase of my soul's existence and hope I land in a more positive world.   tinybiggrin

Quote:Scientists study swarm of Yellowstone earthquakes
I think it's getting closer.
Quote:BUTTE, Mont. - Seismologists are studying a swarm of 500-plus earthquakes that have rattled the Yellowstone Park area since June 12.

Most are centered 8 miles north-northeast of West Yellowstone. 

That is just a few miles east of the Hebgen Lake Basin, the site of the historic 1959 quake.  That one measured 7.3 on the Richter scale, killed 28 people and created Quake Lake, near the Gallatin National Forest.

Mike Stickney, of the Earthquake Studies office at Montana Tech, said earthquake swarms are normal this time of year.  He says many are smaller.  When we checked we found dozens that measured under 2.0 on the Richter scale. 
After his last statement above, like most Scientist, he Contradicted himself.
Quote:However, Stickney said he hasn’t seen such an extensive swarm of earthquakes in Yellowstone since 2010. 
But he stressed each is small enough that no one is in immediate danger.

Stickney told us, “We live in earthquake country.
We can never say that this isn't leading up to something bigger.  But at this point, we have no reason to believe its portending to be anything more drastic."

What kind of Statement is this: When Live In Country? How Stupid!
You have earth quakes

Let  me know when the big one hits an the peoples republik of kalifornia falls off into the ocean so can celebrate .......

Up Date:
Quote:Updated | Over 800 earthquakes have now been recorded at Yellowstone supervolcano over the last two weeks, with the ongoing swarm taking place on the western edge of the National Park.

But there is virtually no risk of the volcano erupting, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) currently lists the volcano alert level as normal and the aviation color, which lists the potential risk to fights, is at green.
The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4 “This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years,” it said.

Could these quakes be connected?
Quote:TRUCKEE (CBS13) — More than a dozen earthquakes rattled the Sierra Tuesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports at least 16 earthquakes hit the Truckee area since about 2 a.m. The strongest quake was a magnitude-3.9.
Could the earthquakes be linked to all the rain and snow we got last winter? A group of UC Berkeley seismologists says yes.

Update, Update, Update,,,,, it's getting REAL at Yellowstone.
Quote:Fears that deadly Yellowstone supervolcano about to BLOW after 1400 earthquakes hit
YES! Doom On You, Doom On You, Doom On You!!

Quote:YELLOWSTONE volcano has been struck by 1,400 earthquakes in recent weeks, leading to fears that the supervolcano is ready to blow and WIPE OUT life on Earth.

Seismic activity around the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, US, is not uncommon, but the heaviest swarm in half a decade has people very concerned.

Since June 12, there has been over 1,400 tremors in the region, and experts state that the swarm could go on for another month.

The Yellowstone Caldera supervolcano last erupted 70,000 years ago but a spike in seismic activity around the national park has unsettled nerves.

If the Wyoming volcano were to erupt it would kill an estimated 87,000 people immediately and make two-thirds of the USA immediately uninhabitable. The as the large spew of ash into the atmosphere would block out sunlight and directly affect life beneath it creating a “nuclear winter” and threatening ALL life on earth.
We also had that earthquake in Scotland,,, minusculethinking makes you wonder doesn't it.

I find this interesting and could be tied into Yellowstone, as I've heard that the Active Lava Tubes can flow for miles underground and connect to other Lava Reservoirs.
Quote:With 8 threatening volcanoes, USGS says California deserves close monitoring
[Image: 460x1240.jpg]
Quote:With the world's top volcanologists heading to Portland, Ore., on Aug. 14 for the first international volcanology assembly held in the U.S. since 1989, the many famous, prominent and dangerous volcanoes of the West Coast will be the subject of field trips and much discussion.

Throughout the Cascade Range to southern California, the West Coast is home to most of the country's highest-threat volcanoes, as ranked by the United State Geological Survey.
And California has its share.

While Mount Shasta unsurprisingly tops USGS's list of very-high threat volcanoes in California, there are seven other volcanic areas in the state that are also young, nervy, jacked up on magma and "likely to erupt."

Scientists know from geophysical and geochemical research that these volcanoes have molten rock, magma, "in their roots," said Margaret Mangan, Scientist-in-Charge at the California Volcano Observatory. "I call them the watch-list volcanoes." 

On watch

As listed by the California observatory, the eight fall into three danger categories:
  • Very-high threat: Mount Shasta, Lassen Volcanic Center and Long Valley Volcanic Region
  • High threat: Clear Lake Volcanic Field, Medicine Lake Volcano and Salton Buttes
  • Moderate threat: Ubehebe Crater and Coso Volcanic Field

In 2005, a national team led by John Ewert, a volcanologist with the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory, established a system for deciding which of the United States' 169 young volcanoes are the most dangerous and most in need of monitoring. In the "Framework for a National Volcano Early Warning System," Ewert's team identified 57 priority volcanoes in the U.S.

Among the 18 "very high threat volcanoes," 11 are along the Cascade Range in three states (Alaska and Hawaii have the others):
  • California: Lassen Volcanic Center, Long Valley Caldera, Mount Shasta
  • Oregon: Crater Lake, Mount Hood, Newberry, South Sister of The Three Sisters
  • Washington: Baker, Glacier Peak, Rainier, St. Helens
If only we knew for-sure just How enter-connected those were to the Big One Under Yellowstone.

That's pretty scary stuff.   tinysurprised
