A week of earthquakes in the Intermountain West.
The Intermountain West corridor: All of Utah and up to Yellowstone; a discrete part of the US allowing me to indulge my hobby of observing seismic events on a weekly basis.
Micro earthquakes, minor earthquakes and any biggies: they are all interesting to watch. When, where, how big (on the Richter Scale), how deep, their effect on local topography ~ all interesting, to me, at least.
And a week is a non-demanding period of observation supported by a progressive map provided by the US Seismic Service, at the University of Utah.
26 earthquakes in the region in the last week, more than previous few weeks, but still below our average for events here. Nothing major to report – 2.1 appears biggest, to my south. (You might remember that I live in the “Heigh Diddle Diddle” of my observed area).
My hobby has to compete with recent trendy phenomena (Eclipse of the Sun, last night’s partial eclipse of the Moon, and tomorrow’s Transit of Venus) so my recruits have been sparse ~ but I persevere.
As usual I provide my information to inform never to alarm,
