Different seismic event pattern in the Intermountain West this week
As a hobby I observe the seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone) on a weekly basis.
My information is provided by the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah
As usual my information is to inform, never to alarm.
Fifty three events were recorded for the week in the mapped area.
- 34 0f 39 events for Idaho were recorded at Island Park ID including a 3.0 and a 3.1 (both in the minor earthquake category, the remaineder in the micro category.
- Utah recorded 9 event - all micro
- Montana completed the list with 5 micros.
I am fascinated by the weekly patterns and the level of seismic activity in the Intermountain West. My home in Sandy UT is right in the middle of the mapped area that I observe.
What excitement do you have where you live?
