Like scattering confetti in the Intermountain West, a shake or two...

recent earthquakes Intermountain West

A minor earthquake (a 3.1) a few hour hours ago at Kanosh UT, 29 seismic events (earthquakes) for the week in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone) 28 in the micro category, 22 of the events for the week within the borders of Utah, 6 of those events near Huntington UT. Our portion of the seismic event map produced by the US Seismic Service, located at the University of Utah looks like a confetti scatter, making the Yellowstone part looks like it has been napping this last week

All this is of interest to me as my hobby is observing seismic events in the Intermountain West on a weekly basis. My area of interest has me living at the middle of the map,in Sandy UT.

Information is readily available (even up to hourly updates) from the US Seismic Service. In most cases events are reviewed by Seismologists, adding further details to information available.

Like any hobbyist I like to attract others to my choice. It is quite absorbing. My interest in seismic activity is always to inform, never to alarm. I am not involved in prediction of events, merely the observation of recent occurrences.

It's a great hobby.

Larry, I always enjoy your map and information about seismic events -- I'll have to visit with you about the potential for seismic events in Latin America when I travel there later this year.

Hey Gary ~ it's good to see you around. Been a long while. Seismic events are interesting in that we are always having them. Where they turn up is still relatively unpredictable. The greater the human habitation; the greater the accurate recording. Looking forward to next contact.
