22 Jan 10 - More than 1,000 earthquakes have been recorded in Yellowstone National Park since Sunday, says this article in the Billings Gazette.
"That’s more than half the total annual average in the park — 1,600 a year," the article continues. "Last year, a swarm of more than 800 quakes near Yellowstone Lake was recorded in late December and early January. All told, more than 1,650 earthquakes were recorded in the park in 2009."
Ten of the quakes have been magnitude 3.0 or greater, while more than 800 have been less than magnitude 2.0.
