A week of seismic events in the Intermountain West
Seismic events are also called earthquakes. They are a common feature of the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone). Their occurrences in weekly blocks provides the substance of my hobby.
I observe and report seismic activity in the region. If you were to draw lines from corner to corner on the US Seismic Service (located at the University of Utah) map, then you will find me living at the cross over (X), in Sandy UT.
As always,my intention is to inform, never to alarm.
This week has produced thirty events for the Intermountain West.
- 14 events in Utah
- 14 events in Montana - 8 of these recorded in West Yellowstone MT (4 Thursday, 2 Saturday)
- 1 event Idaho
- 1 event northern Arizona.
All earthquakes this week were in the micro category, most passing unfelt by residents. The largest, a 2.8 was recorded in Spencer ID.
My spark for the week was a "tiddler" recorded about three miles NE of my location in the mountains of the Wasatch Front which add so much to the visual beauty of Utah.
I did not feel it.
Rock on for the week in your place called home.
