Not really feeling these latest ones. The threshold for that must be about 4.5 or so. At least where I am.

Is it a possibility that this may be Yellowstone waking up or are these quakes normal for that area given how geologically active Yellowstone is?


These quakes were up in Montana, a pretty good ways away from Yellowstone. But Yellowstone is so big, and particularly the massive magma plume that extends well into Idaho and beyond, there is no telling for sure. But I think most scientists would just regard this as just a tectonic based quake in Montana. The End.

And oh, in case any of you missed it, you better check this:

Enjoy.

Just saw Violet's thread on Phillipines 6.9 quake, is there some connection? Sorry to be so clueless. Thanks for monitoring, I have Peeps in SFCA and Tahoe. Scareyyyy...

I am feeling many shocks in NW montana. not huge, but big enough to knock things off the entertainment center. Family all over western Montana is feeling them.

Apoarantly it was felt hundreds of miles away

How does this play into the Yellowstone volcano?
epicenter was only 230 miles from Yellowstone

The quake in the Philippines was downgraded to 6.5

Not sure if that is related to Antipodes, but there's maps where you can look that up. It's when a quake is the direct oppposite on the globe from another one.
These don't come up as opposites.www.antipodesmap.com...


However, massive earthquakes on one side of the globe can weaken faults.

Appreciate the info.

That's an odd one, stay safe all.I will be following this. News is saying it was felt as far as West as Spokane and far South as Pullman, WA.

In addition, source map where felt and article:

"Montana geology creates unusual earthquake risk that isn't fully understood "



The earthquake south of Lincoln that shook people from Spokane to Billings occurred along a fault not previously mapped by seismologists, which is not surprising in a region less studied than the seismically active West Coast.

“We know many faults around here from their signature on the landscape or because they have had little or big earthquakes on them, but there are very likely many more we don’t know about because they’ve been quiet like this one,” said Rebecca Bendick, an associate professor at the University of Montana who studies earthquakes, the formation of mountains and natural disasters worldwide.

Continued...

More on the fault,



The Intermountain web of fault lines stretches from the Kalispell area through Lincoln and Helena toward Yellowstone. It then splits into two forks. The main one reaches the Wasatch Mountains and Salt Lake City in Utah. The smaller one branches into southwest Montana and central Idaho.

Stickney said the quake that originated about nine miles underground near Lincoln appears to be connected to “an ancient zone of faults that runs basically from Helena through Missoula all the way to Spokane.” That area, dubbed the Lewis and Clark Zone, is composed of 12 major faults.

a fault not previously mapped by seismologists


That's quite the confession, there. even if it has been prettified somewhat for public consumption.

Incidentally, this thread was a wonderful commentary on this story, and kept me coming back regularly for updates. Gratitude to TrueAmerican in particular, for some seriously solid reporting.

Yellowstone has been hit with over 1200 earthquakes in the past months. Yellowstone annually gets around 1000 to 3000 earthquakes a year. To have this many in such a short time is raising concerns.

Here is a newsweek article from earlier today.

We all know yellowstone is about 50,000 years past due an eruption.
Don't mean to spread any doom porn just stating facts.

I don't see Yellow Stone blowing for a long time. Scientists say about a 10% chance in the next century. Swarms do happen at Yellow Stone quite often.

Not worried.. but when you think about it, 10% in the next 100 years is quite scary, considering the impact it could have. O.o

Scary stuff!! Hope all there are safe, and no serious damage done.

I always wonder if these are a precursor to something bigger, especially with so much volcanic activity up there. Stay safe, people.

Has anyone wrongfully blamed these quakes on fracking yet?

From what we know of the magma plume underneath Yellowstone this pile of energy associated with the magma could certainly be connected as far west from Wyoming as maybe even the Mtn passes in Oregon and Washington. And that includes where you are in Idaho I am sure.

We have a running theory in my office (full mostly of chemists/engineers and physicists) that the antipodal earthquake is always in play. So even though there is is only a few of our people who are geological engineers with no seismologists, we pay attention to the big ones. Our observation to this matter is the pattern of one on the other side of the planet seems to be met with one from this side of the planet and vice versa a lot of times. Not every time but a lot of times there is a reaction within 24 hours.

That's interesting. 24 hours hmmm.
Is it more common this happens with mega quakes, as in mag 7 or higher?

I don't doubt there's something to this theory.

Definitely the big ones show that and 7 or > is for sure in the mix.
