2 Feb 10 - Since January 17, 2010 Yellowstone has had 1,620 earthquakes, the second largest swarm ever recorded. The swarms have been steady at about 10 miles in depth and they have subsided a few days ago.
"The vast majority of the quakes have been too small to be felt," says
this article in the Powell Tribune. "The highest quake has been a
magnitude 3.8, and no injuries or damage have been reported. It
typically takes above a magnitude 5 to cause damage."
The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, which monitors the caldera, has said it is “confident” that the recent quakes are the result of shifting and changing pressures in the earth’s crust — not due to an increase in volcanic activity.
“We’re not worried about Yellowstone blowing up. Not even a little bit,” said Glenn Koelling, a winter keeper at Canyon Village.
