Yellowstone way up in numbers, 93 for Oct,
Wow, that is a big jump!
I just spent 2 weeks working at the Yellowstone Canyon Lodge in early October, driving by the mud volcano areas in the morning was quite impressive. It seemed that everywhere I looked I could see geothermal activity for miles around. It did seem to me to be above average activity, although I don't have a lot of visual history to go on.
I can tell you though, there's nothing like being there to really drive the point home of just how massive and potentially catastrophic the whole complex is.
Excuse the poor quality and dirty windshield, but here's a short vid of a few of my morning drives to work. You can click on the YouTube link below the vid to see more. Hope it gives those who have never been there a 1st person perspective and greater respect of the power of our little Supervolcano. I didn't get to Old Faithful to clean-off the webcam and wave to all of you ATS'ers, sorry (Throwback from a 2009 conversation in the "What's going on at Yellowstone?" thread...)

After the initial event, activity increased and epicenters propagated southward to within 5 km of known hydrothermal vents and drill holes

Right outside that bay. I don;t think I've seen anything there before.
I've been watching this area more than most because of the sinkhole situation in Bayou Corne, LA. I know this is Mississippi.
Could this be connected? I've been following the other threads about, LA, and I gotta say, it sounds kinda spooky down there.
