A more peaceful week for seismic events in the Intermountain West.
My hobby is observing seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West region (Utah to Yellowstone) on a weekly basis. I usually post a summary of events on a Tuesday. My location is about the middle of the map in Sandy UT.
As always my intent is to inform, never to alarm.
This week produced 22 events for the region, way down from the 50 last week. All were in the micro category (less than 3.0). A friend in the south of Utah commented on one of them ~ most passed unnoticed.
- 12 events in Utah (Orderville Ut 2.0)
- 6 events in Montana, mostly West Yellowstone.
- 2 events in Wyoming, with Owl Creek WY producing an event at 1.9
The map is provided by the US Seismic Service, located at the University of Utah. They update their reports hourly.
We had a quiet week; how was yours?
