According to the USGS, about 11 earthquakes were recorded near Yellowstone National Park in 24 hours. This is not necessarily as alarming as one would think, but it is interesting.
It seems that in the last 30 days alone there have been 30 or more earthquakes in the same area, and when you really think about it, it’s a lot. Although these earthquakes were of a much smaller magnitude overall, one of them, which occurred on Friday (May 29), had a magnitude of 3.1, and KTVQ noted that several of these events occurred on the morning of that Friday, and were located about 15 miles northeast of West Yellowstone. They were about 2 miles deep.
Of course, small earthquakes are quite common in the area, but we closely observe such swarms for various reasons. As you probably know, Yellowstone is a massive supervolcano. Although these quakes were generally quite small, we sometimes see major activity in or around these areas.
The Epoch Times wrote on this subject as follows:
The tremors ranged from 1.6 to 3.1 on the Richter scale, the agency said on its page “Recent earthquakes”. The Idaho Statesman reported that the area, which is located in Wyoming and Montana, has experienced about 34 earthquakes in the past month.
Yellowstone is one of the most seismically active areas in the United States, with 700 to 3,000 quakes per year, according to the park’s website. It is expected to reopen on Monday after it was closed due to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
Yellowstone is also known for its supervolcano, which is 34 to 45 miles wide and in some areas is about 3 miles below the surface. The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory stated that the volcano is currently “green” or “normal”.
