Earthquakes in my life
My readers: you will realize that I may have a strange hobby for a Real Estate Agent. I like to observe earth movements (earthquakes) in my locality. Here I have chosen to look at the whole of Utah and include places north to Yellowstone, conveniently labeled “The Intermountain Corridor” by the US Seismic Service.
The maps that I observe indicate earthquake locations and intensity for the last week. This time 34 events are recorded.
Draw an X on a map corner to corner, and at the overlap you have my approximate location.
I live in Sandy UT
Several years of observation indicate that I can expect 20 – 50 earthquakes per week in the region Most of these are under 2.5 (Richter Scale), in the micro range, at a significant depth and of short duration. Most occurrences pass unnoticed by locals. To feel these, a person has to be standing on ground, in the vicinity of the occurrence..
As always, my observations, my hobby, are provided to inform, never to alarm.
