A lull in seismic events this week in the Intermountain West
My hobby of observing seismic events (earthquakes) for the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone) over the last week shows we have had 24 events ~ all in the micro category.
- 18 events across Utah, with a 2.3 at Tropic UT
- 3 events West Yellowstone MT. Biggest for the week, a 2.6.
- 2 events Warm River ID
- 1 event Hoya NV.
The closest to me was a a micro event last Friday at Canyon Rim UT, 5 mile NNE of Sandy UT.
Information on seismic events for the Intermountain Corridor is readily available from the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah.
As usual the information provided by my hobby is designed to inform and interest, never to alarm.
As a resident Sandy UT I observe the normal precautions relating to the area, especially those pertaining to Seniors, and the Disabled. I participate in Earthquake Drills and attend information meetings.
All in all, a quiet week. How did you fare?
