We bounced along for the week in the Intermountain West

Intermountain West seismic events

My hobby interest is observing seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone) with my home , Sandy UT in the middle of the mapped area. My observations each cover a period of one week. As usual my information is to inform, never to alarm.

My information comes from the US Seismic Service at the University of Utah

This last week produced fifty seismic events, of these, 32 were in Utah and 12 in Montana (10 at West Yellowstone).

All events for the week were in the micro range.   Kanab UT produced the highest reading, 2.7, twice. Enoch UT recorded four events, and Emery UT and Paragonah UT, three each. The closest to Sandy UT were events at Herriman UT, Tooele (pron.Twiller) UT and two at Stansbury Park UT, all 25 - 30 miles from here.

We are alive and well and rocking along in the Intermountain West.

ps ~ my weekly report on seismic events in the Intermountain West has readers in Australia.

Ralph - I started my observations here regularly about three years ago. Our current numbers are supposedly still in the normal range for the region. Most locals are unaware of the activity, very few here share my hobby.

Larry - I don't think many people realize just how many of these events happen most of which we never feel.   Very intersting post.

Larry, good to know that someone is tracking the rumbling downunder! Kind of humorous it would be someone from the land downunder! Enjoy your day!

Jim - You are certainly right there.

Carolyn - You're welcome.

Belinda - Comment came with a real estate enquiry. search ability for AR is very impressive.

Wayne - good joke. Asked about Australian Records for Family History in Salt Lake City and was told they were "Down Under" (Basement Level 2). Us Aussies are having a cultural effect on the whole world. Bewdy, mate.

Joan - I went to a presentation last night by the Earthquake Lady (Utah's Government version of Chicken Little). Great presentation for living in "Earthquake country". I seek to inform never to alarm. She is of the opinion that the big one is overdue. I am prepared as part of my nornal living.
