00000000 Yellowstone

Nearly a dozen earthquakes have shaken the area near Yellowstone National Park in the past 24 hours, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Eleven earthquakes have been reported near West Yellowstone, Montana, in 24 hours, and 34 quakes have hit the same area in the past 30 days, according to Earthquake Track. Early morning Friday, a 3.1 magnitude earthquake shook the area, Earthquake Track reported. The other quakes reportedly ranged between 2.5 and 1.6 magnitudes. The earthquakes were about 3 miles deep, according to USGS. They were located about 15 miles from West Yellowstone in Yellowstone National Park, MTN News reported. “Yellowstone is one of the most seismically active areas in the United States,” the park said on its website.

“Approximately 700 to 3,000 earthquakes occur each year in the Yellowstone area; most are not felt.” Earthquakes in Yellowstone typically happen in swarms, according to the park. “This phenomenon is related to transport of volcanic fluids along the many small fractures in the shallow rocks over the magma, a pattern that has been noted in volcanoes around the world,” according to the park.  –The Insider
