CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Yellowstone National Park was jostled by a host of small earthquakes for a third straight day Monday, and scientists watched closely to see whether the more than 250 tremors were a sign of something bigger to come. Swarms of small earthquakes happen frequently in Yellowstone, but it's very unusual for so many earthquakes to happen over several days, said Robert Smith, a professor of geophysics at the University of Utah.
"They're certainly not normal," Smith said. "We haven't had earthquakes in this energy or extent in many years."

I think it's a safe assumption that no one wants to see Yellowstone do anything excessively seismic, Good Wolf.
The force that can be generated by all of the geothermal capabilities of Yellowstone is beyond fathoming. It's staggering what that one park will do to this whole country when the clock reaches 0.
