I am picking up 150 micron quakes at Yellowstone in GEE.

Those are small, about 2, maybe 3 magnitude, but the whole park is picking them up and I am monitoring about 5 or 6 stations in GEE.

They definitely seem to be quakes, as they are confirmed on all stations. Man made events won't do this.

Stay tuned, I'll dig up some more info if I can.

Yep, confirmed on the webicorders as well:

www.quake.utah.edu...

there's lkwy.

Hmm, I wonder if this could be the start of another swarm. They are still coming in on GEE, and I've got 6 stations in the park up.

I'm widening monitoring to 9 stations, and all broadband channels.

Think it's in relation to what's going on up in the northwest with all the rumblings there?

Man, oh crap, h17A is pushing 500 microns on the BHN channel and 200+ on BHE. This is not good.... That is bigger than anything I remember from January swarms...Those topped out at about 3 or 400 microns... HMMM.

WTF, why isn't the USGS reporting on these yet? They are clearly quakes. They are registering on 9 stations for sure. And they look similar in spacing and in character to portions of the swarm last January.

I'm in Northern Utah now. What do these mean? Haven't felt anything here, although the Wasatch range is my backyard, so may make it difficult.

When SHOULD I feel something?

Quake swarm

Well it is an active area seismically speaking that is. Nothing to worry about, just another earthquake swarm. Thanks for sharing TA

WHERE in Northern Utah????

Northwest or northeast? Anywhere near Yellowstone???

You won't feel anything unless they get substantially bigger than that. Tell me how many miles as best you can estimate please you are form YS.

Lately there have been many quakes in Emery Utah.

As well as other "diverse places".
Remember the wells, nevada earthquake not too long ago?

Not sure why unless its that tunnel boring machine again
digging tunnels for the elite and the military!

Kidding, (I hope)!

I receive email notifications from the usgs.
I tell ya there are some weird stuff and thingy's going on lately!
sslearthquake.usgs.gov...

Thanks for the update from your gee stations Trueamerican!

Town called Layton, 30 miles north of Salt Lake.

will let all know if we feel something.

Got a few up on GEE as well, only getting LHE and LHN from LKWY, but others (YLT, YML, YMV) are getting EHZ into the 100 nanometer range.

Still nothing showing up at USGS.


edit: YLT EHZ was up at 300 nano +

I appreciate the info, please continue to update.

I'm not an expert I'd think they could be getting ready to have a bigger quake somewhere in the northwest in the coming weeks, but if Oz says it's nothing to worry about, I guess it's nothing.

From what I can see so far, these are occurring close to the lake, as H17A is registering them strongest. I believe that's on the southern tip of the lake.

Actually, I have been seeing activity for the last week at H17A. But none of it showed up on the other stations, so I just dismissed it as man made activity. This is the first time I've seen anything on the other stations as well- meaning of course, that they are quakes. Things appear to be settling back down for the moment.

I'm not finding anything unusual where are you? Is there an area that seems more active?

Call me paranoid, but when I read all those posts yesterday about "rumblings" happening in the northwest, I immediately had the thought of:

"Is there an active caldera in the northwest?"

Hmmm...kind of scary. What if the Yellowstone Caldera is acting up?

You know, not to be fear mongering (I'm really not), but I have an active imagination, and often times I tend to link random aspects together. So here it goes: The web bot prediected that in October, something poisonous could be activated into the atmosphere, and circle the earth 9 times and kill off hundreds of billions of people.

Cliff and George thought perhaps it could be the H1N1 flu, or possibly a mistake in Iran (nuclear) that would throw up nuclear dust, which would circle the world 9 times over. But even Cliff and George say that it's often hard to know what the web bot is tapping into.

What if the "poisonous air" it not nuclear in nature, and not the flu.....but a caldera erupting? Volcanic ashes.....sulfuric acid, etc......creating a type of a nuclear winter, etc...

We have had A LOT of earthquakes and strange things happening lately.....

Anyway, not trying to fear monger....but the web bot prediction could be referencing a volcanic eruption or a caldera going active.

If that's the case, you can say goodbye to the western half of the United States....

hey layton. hubby was stationed at hill for 10 years. made some good friends while we were there. i liked the dry climate. didn't like the lack of wildlife. liked the prices. didn't like the winters. brrr. liked the scenery in the mountains. didn't like the valley. thought the salt flats were weiiiird. thought SLC was the cleanest city (for its size) i've ever seen. in that ten years, we never experienced even one earthquake. if yellowstone pops, you will need a cave to get away from the ash and head due south quick. cause it'll get way too cold in utah

GEE, thanks Nik!
I thought I was the only one with an active imagination!
Oz man got us all calmed down and then you post that!


Maybe the webbot means october of 3022!
Ya, that sound alot better!

Although the chances of it blowing are extremely small,
there is always that chance, unfortunately.

Also weird are the quakes in western montana lately!

The whole world has had a cycle of earthquakes recently, some with Tsunamis. One could easily speculate this is occuring in response to another planetary alignment similar to the 1983 alignment where scientist predicted global catastrophe. Anyone remember Mount St. Everest? 3 years before the last alignment? Maybe vulcanism is on the rise again due to unseen forces playing havoc on gravity?

The smooth constant seismic activity is representative of Magma on the move; it is that simple.

Yellowstone does have a large caldera underneath it, and the magma does move a lot. The question is will the activity continue; should it continue then it is something to keep an eye on at the very least.

The entire Northwest, and Inland Northwest have large areas of volcanic zones. The cascade mountains in Washington State, and Oregon of course have multiple active volcanoes. I know this line of volcanoes continues down into California where I believe there are two super volcanoes.

It seems like the volcanic activity, or hot zones are picked back up in Eastern Washington with Mt. Spokane, skips over North Idaho, and then another hot zone picks up in the Hot Springs, Montana area. I believe this latter connects with the Yellowstone area, but am not sure.

There are theories out that Yellowstone actually blows out, rather than up. Which the Palouse, or prairie of Washington state would appear to attest to; as there are massive volcanic basalt flows from eras of the past.

I would have to disagree with OZ when he recklessly tells People not to worry. I know Australia is a long way from the Northwest, and he probably could tell everyone about Australia, but the Northwest is an entirely different critter all together.

You are nearly 300 miles from YS, Mike. At that distance, in that region of the country, it will take at least a 4.0 and probably more like a 5 or 5.5+ magnitude before you will really feel it.
