A 2.5, a 2.6, a 2.7. All within the same time frame. Is this a sign?

It's rumbling!! More Earthquakes, more volcanoes, I hope nothing comes of this.

There's a HUGE thread on yellowstone with tons of backstory, including a long discussion of this, this afternoon.

I'm not sure we need another thread for this.

Feel no shame about wondering about What's Going On At Yellowstone. The giant thread was started over a year ago.

If you want to know what's happening at Yellowstone right now, here's my experiment which demonstrates the way the swarms occur.

And here's a prediction on posted on the big thread on Dec. 29th 2009.

My equake for firefox has picked up 4 earthquakes 2.5 or stronger at yellowstone in the passed 3 hours.

Is this something to be worried about?

You're posting for Mag 2.7 quakes? seriously?
We get those (and stronger) all the time in Southern California.
My house rattles more when trucks go by.

Can anyone post some of the other sites that give real time info rather than just USGS?

Do we know any alternative sites outside the USA?

Also can anyone post sites that show tsunami registers?

Thanks

When swarms happen at Yellowstone, it is worth noting. This is volcanic activity, not tectonic. There is a world of difference between the two!

In the case of tectonic quakes, tension is relieved with smaller quakes. In the case of volcanic quakes, nothing good can ever be assumed by them.


KA'BOOM!

Nonetheless, here is some narrative to put these quakes into context:




In 1975, a M 6.5 earthquake occurred near the Norris Geyser Basin that was felt throughout the area. The quake created two new geysers, downed one chimney, and created cracks in a parking lot. U.S. Geological Survey describes this historic earthquake. In late December 2008 and early January 2009, there was a swarm of earthquakes—813 total—reaching up to M 3.9. Scientists paid close attention to these quakes since frequency of earthquakes are often—but not always—a sign of an impending volcano eruption. Yellowstone Volcano Observatory describes this swarm. Earthquakes are not just a recent occurrence. Yellowstone National Park has a long history of earthquakes. The earliest account of earthquake activity in the park was recorded in 1872 by Ferdinand Hayden, who had camped in the park. He felt so many earthquakes that he referred to Yellowstone as “Earthquake Camp.” Bob Smith has conducted thorough research on Yellowstone earthquakes since 1970 and is currently the director of the Yellowstone Seismic Network. Even though earthquakes abound in the park, Yellowstone is generally safe for travel. Scientists have no evidence that a volcano eruption is imminent, especially since geological activity has remained somewhat constant in the past 30 years. Yellowstone National Park: Volcano Questions and Answers addresses any safety issues that you may have pertaining to the geothermal conditions of the park. There are many resources available that monitor daily conditions at the park so you can check the frequency of earthquakes before you arrive. Yellowstone Volcano Directory monitors volcanic and earthquake unrest and displays the current volcanic alert level and a monthly summary of conditions. The University of Utah's Seismograph Station features a seismic map that is updated every five minutes within an earthquake—or once every hour. There is no way to plan ahead to completely avoid earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park. Besides monitoring current conditions, you can arm yourself with knowledge of what to do if an earthquake occurs. Generally, it's best to be outdoors in a tent, away from buildings and utility wires. Make sure to pack flashlights, a battery-powered radio, and spare batteries. Yellowstone County, Montana's government site provides tip on how to be safe during an earthquake.

Am I missing something?

What does that even mean?

Big difference enhanced I have been all over the St. Andreas and Yellowstone Park and am a little familiar.
The totally gigantic Yellowstone magma bubble is what makes this baby special. It is frightfully close to the surface. I am reading about it in a great book.
The Short History of Nearly Everything (or something like that)
Any way I hope the mods don't remove this as it is a good place to start without having to dig all the way through the super thread. I have a lot of the statistics right here and will be glad to post some if the thread is allowed to continue. Not to be unfair to the author of the other thread. He or she has done a great job. And has a substantial following already.

I don't think you understand the significance of Yellowstone and the horrors it has in store for us. 2.5's might not mean anything in cali, but near one of the largest calderas on the planet it'd be wise to keep an eye on.

god i hope yellowstone blows, only so we no longer have to have these threads on ats



when haiti happened, there was no notice, it just happened


what makes everyone think yellowstones going to give notice?

why is everyone so obsessed about it? theres probably thousands of earthquakes around the world every day, at least hundreds im sure especially in the oceans


i think our civilization may be getting overly paranoid with this yellowstone thing

I think you meant SAN Andreas not St. No offense, just a bit odd to get that wrong if you study our very big fault line.

Why does everyone interconnect paranoia w/ awareness? No one here is overly paranoid, just keeping an eye on potential catastrophic happenings. Don't try to put yourself on some pedastool cuz you don't care about the inevitable.. some of us like to be prepared.

this is a good one for earthquakes and tsunamis, and other hazards too, it includes a real time map, and list below. Very informative.

I think we can officially claim this is a swarm, a 2.5 immediately after the 3.
