A few earthquakes directly under the lake at
Yellowstone gave me the creeps so I thought I'd share.

Link to page of earthquakes in that area.

Link to cool firefox add-on e-Quake:

A 3.8M earthquake right under the lake is freaky!

Pretty scary indeed! I have been posting overnight the activity on the 'alternative methods of earthquake predictions' thread, I noticed another thread started up as well, people are talking over a shtf situation, but we have noted that for a long time now a circle of quakes has been closing in on this area and Mt St Helens.

huntergather has started a thread here.

Whats going on at yellowstone?

Great job! I checked google to see if any news services have picked this up yet and they haven't. Five of the 13 are over 3.0. This is very noteworthy. Thanks for bringing it to ATS.

From 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes typically occur each year within Yellowstone National Park and its immediate surroundings. Although most are too small to be felt, these quakes reflect the active nature of the Yellowstone region, one of the most seismically active areas in the United States. Each year, several quakes of magnitude 3 to 4 are felt by people in the park.
Although some quakes are caused by rising magma and hot-ground-water movement, many emanate from regional faults related to crustal stretching and mountain building. For example, major faults along the Teton, Madison, and Gallatin Ranges pass through the park and likely existed long before the beginning of volcanism there. Movements along many of these faults are capable of producing significant earthquakes. The most notable earthquake in Yellowstone’s recent history occurred in 1959. Centered near Hebgen Lake, just west of the park, it had a magnitude of 7.5. This quake caused $11 million in damage (equivalent to $70 million in 2005 dollars) and killed 28 people, most of them in a landslide that was triggered by the quake.

Geologists conclude that large earthquakes like the Hebgen Lake event are unlikely within the Yellowstone Caldera itself, because subsurface temperatures there are high, weakening the bedrock and making it less able to rupture. However, quakes within the caldera can be as large as magnitude 6.5. A quake of about this size that occurred in 1975 near Norris Geyser Basin was felt throughout the region.

Even distant earthquakes can affect Yellowstone. In November 2002, the magnitude 7.9 Denali Fault earthquake struck central Alaska, 1,250 miles (2,000 km) northwest of Yellowstone. Because this quake’s energy was focused toward the active Yellowstone volcanic and hydrothermal system, it triggered hundreds of small earthquakes there. The region’s hydrothermal system is highly sensitive to quakes and undergoes significant changes in their wake. Earthquakes may have the potential to cause Yellowstone’s hot-water system to destabilize and produce explosive hydrothermal eruptions.

I was looking at the EQ's also, but it seems that it is pretty normal for those to occur there.

The above link gives you some history of quakes there, from the USGS site.

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (AP) — The University of Utah Seismograph Stations report a swarm of small earthquakes in Yellowstone National Park.

The university says the quakes of magnitude 3.5 and lower have been occurring beneath Yellowstone Lake, five to nine miles south-southeast of Fishing Bridge, a park landmark. The earthquakes that began on Friday and continued on Saturday intensified during the weekend, and there were reports that people in the Yellowstone Lake area felt the quakes.

The University of Utah says they've been in an area of the park where swarms are common.

The sloping park [Yellowstone] great calamity
To be done through Hesperia and Insubria:
The fire in the ship, plague and captivity,
Mercury in Sagittarius Saturn will fade.

IX 83
Sun twentieth of Taurus the earth will tremble very mightily,
It will ruin the great theater filled:
To darken and trouble air, sky and land,
Then the infidel will call upon God and saints.

X 49
Garden of the world near the new city,
In the path of the hollow [caldera] mountains:
It will be seized and plunged into the Tub,
Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.

When the eclipse of the Sun will then be,
The monster will be seen in full day:
Quite otherwise will one interpret it,
High price unguarded: none will have foreseen it.

And of course there is much more which frighteningly points to this event...

I've been watching the USGS online map for years, and normally I check it every week (I live nearby in Rexburg, Idaho).

I haven't seen a pattern like this before.

They are all clustered next to "the Bulge" under the lake, and all are shallow (the magma chamber).

It's highly unusual to have them tightly clustered together like this.

The count is now 47 since Saturday.

It's possible the "Bible Code" is right about a 2009/2010 eruption or series of eruptions.

Hey, I live out here. Bozeman, MT. Just outside the gates. Everone's buzzin out here about the quakes. Lot of people don't know that Yellowstone's the biggest active volcano here in the states. It hasn't went off in like 500 yrs. If it were to go.. Well let's just say I wouldn't have enough time to warn ya. This is something to watch and pay attention too.

Where in the "Bible Code" find that reference to 2009/2010? I am very interested in looking at that myself.

posted on Jan, 7 2009 @ 01:06 PM
First the bible code said 2006, now they say 2010. I do not put much into the code. It was interesting, but way to many things have not happened.

Last evening on NBC - 7 - the news said -

over 250 quakes in Yellowstone - under 3.0 -

Hmmm... not quite right. : )
