Earthquake Swarm in Yellowstone National Park

There's an interesting podcast which details the recent earthquake swarm in Yellowstone National Parkhttp://volcanoes.usgs.gov/yvol/publications/videos.php  ...choose PODCASTS, then choose “Is Something Brewing in Yellowstone

Between December 26, 2008 and January 8, 2009 in the Yellowstone Lake area, there were 813 distinct earthquakes ranging in magnitude up to 3.9.  There was another swarm that was larger – but it was back in 1985.

No property damage occurred.  Take a look, it’s pretty interesting.It’s a good explanation of what’s going on – and we’re not to worry!  

It’s still perfectly safe to visit Yellowstone National Park & the Jackson Hole area.
