There have been several rather tiny quakes that have happened in the general vicinity of Yellowstone National Park over the last couple weeks. But, this shaker was bigger than those and happened way closer to Idaho than the others.
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The head of the University of Nevada's Seismological Laboratory says a trio of significant earthquakes that struck a remote area along the Sierra's eastern front early Wednesday were big enough to cause as much as $1 billion damage if they'd been centered beneath a big city.
Yes, I am kidding a little bit about that 'panic' thing. There has been an earthquake late Sunday morning in West Yellowstone, but it's not exactly a mammoth quake that is likely to wake the super-volcano.
It's always fun to learn that experts think that your part of the country will one day disappear in a cloud of rubble. That's right. Earthquake experts believe that a huge earthquake and tsunami will someday end life as we know it. Have a nice day.
There was a rather small earthquake today that would normally not be worth mentioning except for the fact that this happened in a very famous place. It occurred just to the south of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.
I tend to be an earthquake junkie. I lived in central California a couple years after the 1989 quake that happened during the World Series. But, even I would be hard pressed to think of a valid reason to mention this tiny quake that just happened near Challis, Idaho.
WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (AP) — Officials say no damage has been reported following 4.3-magnitude earthquake Monday morning in a lightly populated area in western Montana just north of the Idaho border.
The USGS is reporting that a 3.9 earthquake hit today just south of Elko, Nevada. Granted, a 3.9 isn't the type of quake you see making California fall into the ocean in the movies. But, it's big enough that it makes you pay attention.
