Tremor Rattles West Yellowstone, MT

Earthquake

The University of Utah reported that a light earthquake of magnitude 3.0 occurred at 3:23 am Saturday eight miles north of West Yellowstone, Montana.  The shaker was felt by persons in Yellowstone and the town of West Yellowstone.  A similar shaker of 3.5 was recorded just four days earlier 16 miles East-Northeast of the town.  Over 50 earthquakes of magnitude point-3 to 3.5 have occurred in the area since the beginning of the month, with most having occurred near the Norris Geyser Basin. The university seismologists quickly point out that much of the seismicity in Yellowstone occurs as swarms.  University of Utah Seismograph Stations continue to monitor Yellowstone earthquakes and scientists ask that anyone who felt any of these earthquakes fill out a “felt report” on the U.S. Geological Survey website.

Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
