7 May 07 - Sixteen small earthquakes with magnitudes up to two-point-seven shook Yellowstone National Park last week.

Bob Smith, a University of Utah professor, says the quakes occurred
on the southern edge of a volcano caldera at the center of Yellowstone.
The Yellowstone region is an ancient supervolcano that will one day erupt again, scientists say. It’ll be a colossal event that destroys life for hundreds of miles and coats much of the country in ash. Likely, such an event is far off.
Last month, we reported that activity at Yellowstone has been on the
rise in recent years and that it is deforming the landscape in
unexpected ways. Mountains are sinking.
