Well there was just a 2.9 near Hebgen Lake, and that could be confusing the issue- cause that's in a different spot than the swarm happening now. And
it's in a different spot than the original swarm talked about in the OP at Hebgen, too- slightly south from the original. And probably due to
faulting, not magmatic or hydrothermal caused.
I don't believe the quakes in the swarm spot itself are increasing in magnitude. The biggest recent ones are about the same mags as the biggest recent
ones from yesterday. UU sort of stopped short listing them all, so we will have to wait another day or two to get the full picture when they list
And the swarm continues- just getting another coming in now.
