Im not sure if this deserves it's own thread or not, (Mods?), but I was watching the seismograms for Yellowstone when the quakes that just hit outside San Diego started showing up on the monitors.

Here's the link to the quakes,

and here's a link to the page that has all the Jellystone monitors

Now Im not saying Yellowstone is gonna blow. This is a typical reaction to larger quakes anywhere in the world. Jellystone shakes all the time.

Click on the images for the different stations around the park.

Kinda cool huh?

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Yes, it's pretty typical for some of the seismos in YS to pick up teleseisms, and relatively speaking, SoCal isn't all that far away so they arrived fairly quickly. Following the mag 4.9 in SoCal at 19:33 UTC, the P waves reached YS at around 19:34:30. (The YTP seismo has a good, clear trace as they come in.) This arrival is actually a little sooner than the estimated arrival time on the USGS map here, but some variation is normal.

But the main thing is -- as you say -- they don't indicate that old YS is gonna blow. It's just normal teleseism activity. And yes, it is kinda cool.
Amazing to think how fast those P waves travel. All that way in just a couple of minutes...

Best regards,

I just happened to be looking at them when all of sudden it was obvious something had just happened somewhere in the world.

Kinda like just happening to be looking up when a meteor enters the atmosphere overhead.
