Well, sporadic, small activity has started again- and I think near the same area. Seen another 10 events or so in the last hours. So it might not be over. Dunno. We'll see, once they post them tomorrow. Or Monday. Or Tuesday... Or...

Also once a 7.6 earthquake hits Northern California...a magnitude 10 is coming from off the Coast with one heck of a wave. Wish me luck in the tube bro!

Huh. New activity now incoming, and of higher magnitude...Damn that's scary to look at on my rig.

Those are in the 2.5 region peaks, but there are lots of them... Yikes. Hold on folks, this ain't over yet it seems...

You can start to see them coming here at YMR:

Keep refreshing the page, as it is going to take some minutes for you to see more.

Hah. USGS reporting that top peak mag at 3.4, and just one quake. NOT. This is a rapid fire, moderate swarm. They'll post more later.

Now what's curious is they are placing that in the Lower Geyser Basin- and previously, the swarm there had not reached 3 mag. So the swarm there is now increasing in peak magnitudes with that 3.4. They go any higher, and this could be magma, not hydrothermal.

Likely not so coincidentally, Steamboat Geyser in the Norris Basin erupted in Late July for the first time in 8 years. It's the world's tallest currently active geyser.
When I saw the news that it went off, that was my first thought - Magma's moving...

Thanks again for keeping us updated and linking us to the seismographs.

What caught my eye this morning was the 3.4 .. how many total has ole faithful had so far today?

Also noticed the New Madrid is actively shaking this morning. Now, that is really close to home for me here in the good ole state of Tennessee.

Shouldn't we see tremors if magma is moving? those quakes seem tectonic in nature.

Typically yes, tremors are associated with Magma Movement. I was basing my assumptions on the fact that the groundwater under Steamboat Geyser was being heated enough to produce an eruption. Hence, the source of the heating had to be closer. It may not be "moving", but the chamber is most likely "filling"?
All totally un-scientific assumptions, I'm just looking at cause and effect.

why is the lower blue line on lake yellowstone bending?

Ok so what's going on right now is tremor - right guys? Fuzzy Caterpillars...
Here's the direct link to the webicorder, it's a little clearer.

We should be seeing this i think

During the eruption it looked like this

I personally don't know a whole lot about volcanoes or earthquakes, but am fascinated by them. I have read a lot about earthquakes lately and volcanoes. Are they increasing in frequency around the world or just being reported more often? Also please keep up the updates on this, thank you so much for the information.

Jonfr link coming back 'access forbidden' but the El Hierro one is working. Yeah thank goodness it doesn't look like that, I'd be packing up the truck! I'm still seeing a steady rumble on the webicorder though... It's got me pacing around the apartment mumbling "fuzzy caterpillars"

Do I trust them? Yes.

...

...waiting for the scientists to make up their minds whether they should raise the alert level and potentially risk millions of dollars in tourism- when all of a sudden- KAPOW.


See this right here is where my lack of faith in officialdom is sourced.

I'll accede to your trust in those whom you are in contact with, but their bosses and higher up, nah...

 


Those caterpillars are likely wind.

The magnitudes are getting larger. Check out the latest quake on PB.206.EHZ

With your experience reading these things, what mag would that be do you think? 4 - 5?

Just a guess, maybe Mag 3.8 to 4.1?

ETA: I was too high. USGS says Mag 3.6 Ml

How close are you to this beast and do you feel any of this shaking? Does geyser activity pick up when these tremors occur and is there any notable difference to indicate activity below, or is it mainly ground acceleration that happens?
