Fairly quiet in the Intermountain Corridor.

This has been a fairly quiet week for seismic activity (earthquakes) in the Intermountain Corridor, a mere 28 events ~ all in the micro range, although a 2.9 at Big Water UT and a 2.8 at Lechee AZ are knocking at the 3.0 boundary of minor earthquakes.

My hobby: observing the seismic activity of the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone) in periods of one week. I chose this defined area to observe because I live in the middle of it in Sandy UT. In portraying my excitement for my hobby, my intent is always to inform, never to alarm.

Seismic information for my area of interest is readily available through the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah.

Kanosh UT featured big last week with twelve events, but this week could register only two micros. This week's focal leaders were West Yellowstone MT and Huntington UT with six each. Huntington residents know they are slightly above the seismic event average for Utah, and a mere 98% above the National average. Located in Emery County, they take these events in their stride.

Trivia:  Last evening CL and I watched San Francisco  - what else? (TCM 1936 top grossing movie ~ Clark GableJeanette MacDonald Spencer Tracy ~ a musical with an earthquake that was older than both of us but has stood the test of time as wonderful entertainment and great visuals.)

How are you shaking where you live?
