The Quake in Vanuatu and Papua will be given in the Statistic of magnitude 7.0-7.9.
2010 has the most magnitude 7 quakes in 10 years.
2009 there were 16 magnitude 7 quakes, which we have already achieved in August ...
18 magnitude 7 quakes were recorded in 1999. I am sure we will catch up this year too.
If there is more than 18 magnitude 7 earthquake in this year, than have 2010 the most magnitude 7 quake in 20 years (achieved even more).

You are pretty close with the magnitude. We recorded it as a Magnitude 3.26, located 43.6017 -110.4217.
We record the Teton Seismic Network data. The network is maintained by the USGS. The regions we are responsible for are Yellowstone and Utah.
We do locate earthquakes in the area, but it is not in our "authoritative region" so our locations are not posted on the web. The NEIC at the USGS posts locations for M4.5+ and or felt events. We did a count yesterday and we have located 101 earthquakes in the area since August 4. Most of these are less than M 2.0, but 6 are M 3.0 or greater.
