A week of seismic events provide fascination.
A week of 37 seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone - the Intermountain Corridor) for the last week.
The information to fuel my hobby (to inform, never to alarm) of observing seismic activity in this region is provided by the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah. Information provided for each event is more detailed than is necessary for my weekly written observations, but I find it fascinating.
I live in Sandy UT, at the approximate middle of the map for my observed region. I like to think our magnificent mountain scenery benefited from eons of local seismic activity.
- 15 events across rural Utah. Largest 2.5 (micro category) at Mayfield UT
- 13 events in MT, 12 of these at West Yellowstone including one reading 3.5 (minor category), one at Dillon MT 2.7 (micro)
